10 SepCharles – Our Champion

Despite some challenging days for Charles earlier this Summer we are pleased to report things are starting to look up for him. Charles travelled to Shanghai in June with his loving ayi by his side. He had a full review by the medical team who know him well and they decided surgery was the best course of action for him.

We are continuously grateful to Baobei Foundation who cover the medical costs associated with these hospital visits in Shanghai. We love their willingness to help our children, particularly at very short notice; as is often the case.

The doctors were very pleased with how his surgery and recovery went. Charles was quickly able to return to the Butterfly Home to enjoy the long Summer days with his friends.

Summer days have been filled with playground visits, outdoor nature walks, time spent in our inflatable ‘pool’ and plenty of ice-cream on the sunnier days!

Charles has come so far since he first arrived and we know this little boy is going to have a bright future. Although he has complex needs and does things in his special own way, we would love to see him with a forever family of his own. If you think Charles could be your son or want more information contact us at info@butterflyhospice.org.
