I am Tramaine Lee-Lewis, mother of Char'lee Lewis and founder of Char'lee's Cure Foundation. CCF, was birthed out of a need to help other mothers who feel like they are suffocating and drowning in misery from the daily challenges of taking care of a child with special needs.
Personally, I know what it's like to feel overwhelmed, depressed, and miserable as a caregiver. I love my child to LIFE, but the restrictions that raising a child with special needs put on my life was draining, at times. I had to learn how to fight for my mind, my happiness, and my peace.
I now know that fighting made me healthier, happier, a better mom/caregiver, and a better person all around. I also now know what to do to climb out of dark days and today, I will spend my life showing other caregivers that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Caregivers need to know that they BETTER NOT GIVE UP! Real talk - because we still have a purpose. We still have joy. And we still have more life to live. WE ARE STRONGER TOGETHER. SO....LET'S CONNECT!
