“SOAR stands for Survivors Offering Assistance in Recovery – a program of the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors. The Phoenix Society was founded in 1977 by Alan Breslau, a resident of Levittown, PA, who had suffered extensive burns in a commercial airline crash in the early 1960s.
“Through the SOAR program, we’re connecting people who share the experience of a burn injury. That includes burn survivors themselves, as well as their loved ones. Through one-to-one interactions and support groups with survivors, new burn victims are given hope and firsthand information from the only people who fully understand what they are experiencing.”
