At camp, child burn victims rise above the scars

Recovering from a burn injury isn't just physical. Your emotional health needs healing, too. That's what Camp Eyabsut aims to do for young burn survivors, by providing them with an experience where they can just be kids. Jamiah Christin says camp helped her come out of her shell after she was injured in a cooking accident at age 9. Dr. Tam Pham, director of the Regional Burn Center at Harborview Medical Center, explains what it means to see his patients thrive.
