On September 10, 2023,  17-year-old Fletcher Crowley’s life changed in an instant when an ordinary day out with his mates went bad. In that moment, his whole family was impacted in ways they’re only just starting to understand. So six months later, how are they doing? Fletcher and his parents, Nicky and Pat join Mia Freedman to talk about that day and the unexpected aftermath.

You can help the Crowley family and many others by signing this petition to get PBS approval for a life-saving drug for those with the rare form of cancer called VHL like Levi.

Fletcher's foundation Get Silly is here, if you want to buy a jumper or shirt and support spinal cord research and rehab.
