Burke Rehabilitation Center
Hope through Rehabilitation and Research
The Burke Rehabilitation Hospital and Medical Research Institute honored three outstanding individuals at its annual dinner in 2012 in White Plains, NY. reelmatters' short films about each honoree were integral components of the awards presentation. This film is a tribute to Lauren Manning, a 9/11 survivor who completed her rehab at Burke after suffering catastrophic burns on more than 80% of her body, and whose extraordinary recovery has been chronicled in the media and in her best selling memoir.
