Imagine being a child who has been burned. A burn is one of the most painful injuries a person can endure... especially for children. Renowned artist and sculptor, Albert Paley knows too well the pain and suffering of surviving a traumatic burn. 

On July 26, 2002, Paley, 30 feet in the air, was cutting a piece of metal with a blowtorch when a gas line burst engulfing him in flames. He was rushed to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester with third degree burns over 30% of his body.
