Part of her duties included making a smudge fire to deter bugs from bothering the lodge’s horses; a task that Talia had confidently completed many times before. The fire starter that she was using caught on fire and then quickly blew up, causing Talia to catch on fire. Talia was surrounded by her boyfriend and crew at the time and they drove her three hours to the nearest hospital. From there she was airlifted to VGH where she spent three and a half weeks before transitioning to the Burn Fund Centre in Vancouver, where she stayed for another week.“The Burn Fund relies on the generosity of our supporters to fund public burn prevention programs, vital survivor services, and enhanced care for burn survivors,” says Lisa Beck, Executive Director of the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund. “We are thrilled to partner with the VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation for the Hometown Heroes Lottery again this year. Funds directly support burn survivors across the province, many of whom are treated at the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn, Plastic and High Acuity Unit at VGH. Thank you to everyone who buys a ticket for the Hometown Heroes Lottery.”Funds are what drive innovation and sustainable health care at VGH, UBC Hospital, GF Strong Rehab Centre, Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute and Vancouver Community Health Services.
