Lightning Strike Survivor's
Welcome to The Lightning Strike Survivor's Resource Page.
My name is Christine Fram. I am a survivor of a lightning strike.
On August 6,1997 I was struck by lightning while on the job. I live in
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
In Canada, every year lightning kills about seven people
and seriously injures 60 to 70 others.
I created this page to provide a way to contact other survivors,
and for education, to make available accurate information and links to
resources that can help us educate ourselves, our doctors, our famillies
and our friends.

My goal is to make this an effective page of Lightning Survivor Resources
and to provide an on-line email based support list, where survivors and
anyone whose life has been altered by a lightning strike can share, inform,
help and support one another. Do you know: 500-600 people a year are struck
by lightning in North America? 70% of those people survive.

Lightning. This includes: survivors, survivors families, caregivers, doctors,
People involved in safety issues, and many more. People who want to help
and people who need/want to share with others who understand because they've
Do you need a way to communicate with people who know exactly what
you're going through and want to offer their emotional support? Are you
someone who wants to share your experience, strength and hope?
Some survivors have said it has helped end feelings of loneliness
and isolation, others have said it has helped them create hope and goodness
from sadness and injury.
My mission for the LSSL is to encourage survivors to help each other
by sharing the resources (health, medical, insurance, LS&ESSI etc.)
they have found during their journey towards recovery and by sharing their
own experiences and feelings.
I invite you to join the Lightning Strike Survivor's List.
It's easy to do. Just enter your email address in the form below and

is not meant in any way to qualify or disqualify anyone from joining.
