State: Charleston, SC
Facility: MUSC Children’s Hospital
Terry’s foot was accidentally burned when she unknowingly ran through hot ashes while participating in a family Easter egg hunt. She sustained 2nd and 3rd degree burns and was hospitalized for several days. She went home, facing daily, painful and scary bandage changes. She later had to return to receive a skin graft on her foot.
Despite the painful treatments and surgery, Terry maintains a positive attitude. She remains independent and does not let her foot stop her from playing with her siblings and making lots of trips to the hospital playroom.
