Peer Support with a Surprise! – November 8, 2017

Posted on


The Future Is Mine community gathered at the Burn Fund Centre last night, (with some out-of-town attendees joining via video call) to hear the amazing story of Don Schwartz, a burn survivor, who survived a helicopter crash and who dealt with and overcame his Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  While everyone’s journey to recovery is their own,  having Don share his experiences provided attendees with the opportunity to learn, share and reflect on some of their own experiences with PTSD.

In addition, the surprise of the evening was the discovery that a fire fighter, Derek Lanser, who was attending the event last night was also the man who took risks to rescue Eric Phillips, a member of The Future Is Mine, also in attendance!  Eric remembered nothing of his accident so they were able to connect at this event. Very special!!
