Burn victim embraces new lifestyle year after deadly fire
LOMBARD – This time last August, Jason Cassidy was lying in a hospital bed at Loyola University Medical Center’s Burn Center being treated for smoke inhalation and third-degree burns across almost half of his body.
A year later, 26-year-old Cassidy lounges on his living room couch on a Tuesday after work. His body is free of bandages, but scars are visible on his legs and arms from the flames of a house fire that claimed the life of Paula Morgan on the eve of her 25th birthday last July.
Cassidy is finished with doctor visits now, he doesn’t go for physical therapy anymore and he’s back to working full time at a Lombard-based landscaping company. He also bears the mark of someone who’s done quite a bit of growing up in the past year.
