Burn Awareness Week


Seventeen-year-old Kelsay Parrott was blowing out a candle when the string on her sun dress caught on fire, causing painful burns on over 43% of her body.

Parrott was only four-years-old when the incident happened on May 13th, 2003. She spent a total of 53 days in the hospital and was in a coma for three weeks.

But in spite of facing these challenges, Parrott is speaking up and raising awareness for Burn Awareness Week.

"The shirts say 'Support Burn Survivors, I Do' and have an amazing quote on the back. But it's just a part of it because even if you're not a survivor and you buy this shirt you can walk around wearing it and if somebody who is a survivor but is hiding it inside or has a family member that is a survivor. Cause everybody knows somebody who has been touched by a burn survivor, even if they don't know it, there's somebody out there that knows somebody," says burn survivor Kelsay Parrott.

Parrott's selling t-shirts to help benefit Burn Survivors. If you'd like to help out Parrott you can visit this website. All funds go to the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors.
