About the Georgia Pyman Fund

My name is Kirsteen Calder and I established the Georgia Pyman Fund in memory of my gorgeous daughter.  Georgia was 14 years old when she passed away in 2013 and she lived a courageous and wonderful life. 

Georgia was diagnosed with Congenital Cytomegalovirus in 1999 when I was 30 weeks into my pregnancy with her.  The prognosis was that Georgia may pass away in utero before she reached her term date, if she made it that far she would probably not survive the birth and if she did her life expectancy would be 6-12 months.  Little did anyone know the strength of my Gorgeous George. 

I could not change the diagnosis but I could promise to give her the best life possible, no matter what length, and surround her by love.  Georgia was surrounded by love from the day she was born to the day we had to say goodbye. Everyone who had the privilege of spending time with Georgia fell in love with her.  She made you smile.  She was a beautiful soul.

Georgia required 24/7 care from the time she was born. She had a multitude of medical issues and a team of doctors who looked after her medical needs.  In 2006 Georgia was referred to The Palliative Care Service at The WCH.  Sara and the team became part of our family.  They provided my family with the support, guidance and care we needed.  For eight years they were by our side. 

The Georgia Pyman Fund was established to raise awareness and much needed funds for the Palliative Care Service.  I feel blessed that I had this service there for me and my family during our hardest and darkest days.  I want to make sure that Sara and the team can continue their wonderful work for the many families who use the service today and for the families who will need the service in the future.
