Charlotte is the mother of twins Greer and Tavish. She shares raw insights that do not sugar coat the reality of parenting a child with a complex medical condition.

‘Firstly, let me apologise, if you’re here looking for a glimmer of hope or a message of someone who is thriving despite having a medically complex child with a life-limiting condition, this is most probably not going to be that.

If I had sat down to write this about a month and a half ago, it would’ve read differently, but in this sea of grief that has become our collective existence I’m currently riding a BIG sad wave, and I’m coming crashing down to be catapulted onto a damp sandy shore, wet, cold, spluttering trying not to choke on salt. You see, my beautiful girl has recently stopped eating – she’s “nil by mouth” – and eating had been such a large source of pleasure in her life.’

Thank you 🙏🏽 Each and everyone for your support of @thelilycalvertfund this year. There are too many of you to name but without you, we could not do it.

Despite the maddness of 2020 we have launched two major programs raised thousands of dollars and helped bring a little light into the lives of so many families across Australia.

We have raised much awareness because of so many of you - who have generously shared our story and our cause via your amazing reach and channels. Thank you 🙏🏽
