Story

6 years ago, about 6 months into our relationship, my partner was diagnosed with Ulcerative colitis (later changed to chron's disease)- auto immune irritable bowel diseases which affect his entire digestive tract; later he was also diagnosed with fibromyalgia- a long term condition that causes pain all over the body. I love him unconditionally and just desperately want to help him and take all the pain away somehow. I am an adult nursing student working and studying in London; as soon as my bills are paid I put money aside for his treatment and I have also asked friends and family and held my own bake sales in the hospital that I work in as well as in my universirty; however it still isn't enough.
His conditions have affected us a lot and though he is 22 and I am 23 today we both know they will affect us for the rest of our lives. I wish we had the normal stress free relationship where you could go out and have fun whilst you're young but more than that I just wish I could give him all the happiness I can by alleviating his pain so he can move around and do things for himself; right now medical therapy/steroidal treatments have failed to work and the more intense biological therapies (infliximab) are starting to stop working- both immune suppressing treatments; there is only one more treatment option which is to switch the biological he is on, before surgery; each injection/ infusion costs £1000 and he has 1 every few months. If this doesn't work surgery will be on the table and will cost a lot more; because it is so expensive and he is out of work due to the severity of his conditions right now, everyone is running low on money; he has no idea of the money I've raised so far and the money I am still trying to raise for his treatments because I want to surprise him as he is very sad and depressed and it is really difficult to watch him live everyday like this; I would be forever grateful if anyone could help me and all money will go on his treatment only.
