Charlotte: A Life Without Limbs
Charlotte Cleverly-Bisman is the youngest quadruple amputee in New Zealand. At six months of age she contracted Meningococcal Septicaemia and the infection claimed her arms and her legs. Too young to comprehend the extent of her disability at the time of her amputations, Charlotte must now adapt to a life without limbs. Since leaving hospital, Charlotte has had seventeen surgical procedures. The eighteenth is looming. This surgery will be to reshape her stumps so that prosthetic legs will be more comfortable. She is now ready to start daycare and it's obvious from the very beginning that this opens up a whole new world of challenges. Her incredible achievements in the face of insurmountable odds are an extraordinary story. Charlotte: A Life Without Limbs is a truly heartfelt illustration of survival.
