Illuminating the lives of burn survivors & families
The Moonlight Fund provides 24/7 assistance to burn survivors and their family members, as well as families who have lost a loved one to a burn injury. The Moonlight Fund addresses the financial, emotional and physical needs in the hour of need. The Moonlight Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
The needs of burn survivors and their families are great.
In addition to the human loss and suffering from a burn injury, often homes and personal belongings are destroyed as a result of fire and even jobs are lost due to extended medical treatment. What's more, many burn patients are uninsured or on government assistance, encumbering them and their families financially when ongoing treatment, such as physical therapy or psychological counseling, is needed the most.
The Moonlight Fund was established in 1998 by: Burn survivors Henry F. Coffeen III and Celia Belt The family of Ben Jones, who lost his life to a burn injury The medical staff of the burn unit Area business leaders.
