Charlie was a real person and a real character. After being diagnosed with Cancer, Charlie’s goal was to live to see his 80th birthday. Unfortunately, he missed this goal by 5 months.
Charlie may have missed his 80th birthday, but because of him and his community spirit and kindness, many people within his community didn’t.
Charlie also was able to experience love and peace until his last breath. Why? because unlike many, his family had the experience and knew the system well enough to enable him to.
Through his legacy, Charlie’s Gift aims to ensure our frail and vulnerable aged, as well as their family/carers, are supported by their community and provided with what they need to experience a life of wellbeing and to pass away with love, peace and dignity.
