Preston is the burn-survivor whose vulnerability is from head-to-toe.
He could have cried easily but he kept it together.
“The best thing that happened to me because of my burns was, ‘I NEVER GAVE UP!'”
“I DO feel like a hero because I want to inspire other kids who are burned like me and give them hope.
I want to show them that their scars don’t have to stop them from doing anything.
I want to let every burn-survivor know that they don’t have to worry about their burns, but that they can feel normal like I do.
That’s how I want to help everybody who is like me!”
I can’t imagine feeling like a hero at 15-years-old like Preston.
Preston heroes a little bit every day.
It’s not a one-time thing.
