Help Vancouver Firefighters' Charitable Society provide music therapists for BC Childrens' Hospitals' Burn Unit.

A recent burn victim, in this case a distressed young girl, sobbed uncontrollably at the idea of having water touch her ravaged skin. Despite the consolation of nurses and her parents, the association of pain made it almost insurmountably difficult for her to be medicated and washed. It wasn’t until the introduction of music therapy, which allowed her to focus on something exterior to her condition, that she could be consoled.

Heart wrenching stories like this abound in the Burn Unit and are told by nurses and musical therapy interns on a daily basis.

This is why Vancouver Firefighters’ Charitable Society has chosen to support this cause and need your help.
