SC Firefighters/MUSC Childrens Hospital logoThe Burned Children's Fund and the Pediatric Burn Center co-sponsor Camp 'Can' Do, a camp designed specially for burned children. The Burned Children's Fund also supports the FAN Club. This program matches firefighters with burned children to help them return to school as well as educate their classmates about the child's experience. Also accomplished is the creation of a hydrotherapy area in MUSC Children's Hospital, improving the necessary, but unpleasant dressing changes and treatments a burned child must endure.
