In one second, a burn injury changes a kid's life forever. Marion Doctor dedicated her life to healing the pain and isolation of a burn injury through community and love.
Each evening at camp - since the beginning - since Marion and Don and Carole Cheley built the dream of a camp for burn survivors - we have been gathering as a community to sing the friendship song arm-in-arm to end our day. The circle connects all who have come before and all who will join us in the future.
As the sun sets on the life of Marion Doctor, it rises with the hope and healing of tomorrow. Kids will continue to have burn injuries and because of Marion's passion and dedication to serve this population, there is a place of hope where kids will always be welcome to join together and heal together.
Friends, I will remember you, pray for you, and think of you, and when another day is through, I'll still be friends with you.
Day is done. Gone the sun, from the lakes, from the hills, from the skies. All is well. Saftely rest. God is nigh.
If you choose to honor Marion with a gift to burn camp, your gift will help camp continue to offer healing experiences to burn survivors. It costs $1600 to sponsor the experience for one child. Your gift will help a child heal through the power of Marion's vision.
