Our Charitable Works
The Taylor Campbell Pledge Fund at the UNC Burn Center
At eight months old, Taylor Campbell sustained severe burns from a tragic accident in her home that immediately changed her life. Her burns and injuries encompassed 64% of her body. Very few patients with this percentage of burns even survive, yet Taylor beat the odds. Receiving care from the North Carolina Jaycee Burn Center, Taylor lives a full life and shares her joyous spirit. Although she continues to endure procedures, surgeries, and rehabilitation she never waivers from giving back and sharing information about her experience in hopes of helping others.
The "Taylor Campbell Pledge Fund" of the UNC North Carolina Jaycee Burn Center in Chapel Hill, NC will benefit such initiatives as the future Taylor Campbell Burn Clinic of South Eastern North Carolina to be located in Wilmington, North Carolina. The Taylor Campbell Burn Clinic Initiative of Wilmington, NC is a vision of the Campbell family and other community leaders. Inspired by the spirit of Taylor Campbell, this clinic would support burn care in the local community and Southeastern North Carolina. A clinic in Wilmington would allow local patients access to care that is critical for a burn injury.
