Wishing our burn survivors and supporters a very happy new year! Do you have any new year’s resolutions? One of Polly’s (Dan’s Fund founder and CEO) is to look after her own burn scars and body more this year. She has started a course of 6 LPG massage treatment sessions at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital every Wednesday throughout January & February 2024. She hopes this massage treatment with the LPG machine will relax her tight bands of scarring and reduce pain. It will also give her the opportunity to assess the machines and understand their worth, with a view to donating some to the major burn centres across the UK. We’re hoping for great results and will update you in due course!
