19 March - 20 April 2020
Chance4Charlie is a fundraiser for ongoing specialist medical treatment for Charlie Fitz, our current artist in residence who is a young woman with Classical Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. We are currently fundraising for a neurosurgery Charlie needs to have with her specialist neurosurgeon in Barcelona, Dr Gilete.
In Transit has invited artists to produce one limited edition print of an original artwork, especially for the fundraiser. 30% of proceeds will go to Charlie, 70% to the respective artist.
Charlie has Occult Tethered Cord and needs a tethered cord release surgery. She need to raise £30,000 (raised £25,081.99 as of 19 March 2022 – just a little more!) for this surgery which is booked to take place on the 29th April 2022. Tethered cords means Charlie’s spinal cord is inappropriately tethered to the inside of her spinal column causing too much tension in her spine. This is causing nerve damage and putting pressure on her spinal fusion and other unstable areas of her spine.
In Transit will launch a Chance4Charlie exhibition on our Instagram (@intransit_space) on 24 March 2022, 9am (UK time) 4pm (Malaysia time).
This fundraiser is realised with the support of Chroma Art Studio.
