A special camp is giving burn accident survivors the confidence they need to heal from their injuries. Most of those who attend Camp Nah Nah Mah are the survivors of burn accidents and were treated for serious injury at a university medical center. The camp was created by a burn ward nurse and it is held in a state next door to New Mexico.
New Mexico residents who suffer serious burn injuries have a long and often painful road ahead of them to recovery. Not only are permanent damages and disfigurement a possible outcome of burn injuries, but the medical expenses for getting the care one needs can be astronomical. Indeed, many individuals are still lacking in health insurance and cannot afford the high costs of medical care associated with a burn injury.
