Empowering Human Potential


For Burn Survivors, by Burn Survivors


Allow me to introduce you to my friend Lessie Moore.

He was burned on August 18th 2019 in a kitchen fire as he tried to save his wife and his family.

Lessie spent 6 months in the hospital due to burns that covered over 60% of his body. Enduring five surgeries, nerve damage, scar tissue, loss of fingers, severe trauma, countless hours of rehabilitation and many other issues that we all face, Lessie continues to strive on a daily basis.

Today, Lessie runs a YouTube channel to highlight being a survivor of life... He says "Although we are different we are still the same." He would like to encourage you all to subscribe to his channel and become part of the family.

This is my friend Lessie Moore. He is a member of The Marco Houpe Foundation and our November Feature of The Month.

Since 2008, The Marco Houpe Foundation has been dedicated to helping burn patients and their families at every step of their recovery. We support the Nationwide Children's Hospital Burn Unit in conjunction with providing counseling, life coaching, medical and essential needs, direction for reconstructive and plastic surgeries along with education on fire prevention.

In addition, our nonprofit organization in Columbus provides public speakers to hospitals, schools, youth organizations, and corporate companies. Our ideas are directed toward positive development, inner strength, and an "I Can Do It" attitude, all professionally bundled to "Empower Human Potential".

TMHF would like to thank the countless amount of volunteers who have continued to graciously give us their time, dedication and priceless input over the years.

Hello, friends and family.
