It's been two years since an unfortunate incident with an unattended frying pan sent architect Kim Anderson into UNC's Jaycee Burn Center. Anderson arrived with heat-related lung injuries and third- degree burns over 50 percent of his body. He spent two months in a coma, received five skin grafts and suffered through long stretches of rehabilitation.
Rather than focus on the trauma, Anderson and his family have chosen to celebrate the recovery and the gratefulness they have for the team that helped him through his ordeal. "Healin' with a Feelin" is the second benefit the family has organized for the hospital. Billed as a "Night of Burnin' Love," it offers a chance to support the UNC Jaycee Burn Center in its efforts to help burn survivors while enjoying featured performances by the BilliTones, Rebecca & the Hi-Tones, South Wing and the Willie Painter Band, plus a silent auction. —Ashley Melzer
