COLD SPRING, Ky. (AP) -- A northern Kentucky woman who survived a fire that erupted in her car more than a decade ago now leads sensitivity training for families of burn victims and first responders who treat them.
Sharon Everett led a session in advance of the Phoenix Society's World Burn Congress, which runs Wednesday through Saturday in Cincinnati. The event is hosted by Shriners Hospital for Children.
Everett says she is used to people looking at her in public and feels badly only when a child is fearful when he or she sees her, according to The Kentucky Enquirer (http://bit.ly/q9Rvj6 ).
Everett says she wishes parents wouldn't hush their children when they ask what happened. She'd rather they know that she is fine now.
