You are invited to attend a very special event that we will be having instead of burn support group on July 24th. We will be screening a BBC documentary on the Guinea Pig Club, the original burn peer support group. Helen & Norm Klapper will be there to introduce the program and will stay for questions following the screening. This will take place in the new UCH tower, 1st floor conference center auditorium. Refreshements will be served at 5:30 in the lobby outside the auditorium prior to the screening. Please plan on attending. The story is incredible and life-changing.
“Through the eyes of the most painfully exclusive club in the world, this documentary tells the WWII story of two pioneering plastic surgeons, Sir Archibald McIndoe and Canadian Dr. Ross Tilley, whose revolutionary and holistic approach to reconstructive surgery cajoled back into the world of the living airmen so horribly burned and broken they believed they might as well be dead. This is a wartime story that is not about having the courage to die, but finding the courage to live.” Written by Shel Piercy
