Duane – Hero of the Month

Name: Duane
Age:16
State: Charleston, SC
Facility: MUSC Children’s Hospital

Hero of the Month Boy

When Duane was just a year old, he suffered burns to over 90% of his body in a house fire. He sustained 2nd and 3rd degree burns, had loss of limbs and was hospitalized for almost a year. To this day, he continues to return to our hospital to receive a variety of rehab therapies and surgeries.

Despite the limitations his injury has caused, Duane is a social and interactive teen. He participates in a baseball league, is known to beat the best of them in most any video game and is popular with his classmates! Each year he returns to our burn camp for children with burn injuries and you should see him navigate a kayak! He has been a true hero through it all!
