Story

Kurtis Robinson is a 31 year old firefighter stationed at Red Watch, Knock Fire Station. He is husband of Natalie, and devoted dad of 1-year old Benny.

In October 2023, Kurtis unfortunately suffered a heart attack. This was attributed to an issue with his kidneys and he has been in hospital ever since. He was unable to regain his health and on 11 January he was induced into a coma and went into heart failure. Sadly, on 13 January he was only given a few hours to live, and Natalie and the family gathered at his bedside.

Kurtis was in a critical condition for the next 3 to 4 days and remains on life support, however his condition has improved very slightly. He is still in a coma, but making small positive improvements day by day. His road to recovery will be long, and if he gets that far, will include open heart surgery to give him an electric heart until he is able to get a heart transplant. In between this he may require a kidney transplant as well. This is a long and complicated road ahead.

This is a huge burden for his wife Natalie to shoulder, on top of looking after their new son. Natalie has been unable to work in recent weeks, and there will naturally be implications for Kurtis’s income also. Even if we’d like to, we as his friends and colleagues cannot fix Kurtis’s health issues, but what we can do is take away one of the major burdens from his family and assist financially. The family have been blown away by the love, kindness and offers of support shown to them thus far. A donation will allow them to focus on spending time with Kurtis and help him through his long recovery.

There will be a number of events planned in the coming months to coincide with this fundraising and it is of great support to the family to see people coming together in Kurtis’s name. We should always remember we are one big team!

If you know Kurtis he is a man who would do anything to help others. Put yourself in his shoes – we would hope and pray those around us would rally to the family’s aid in there time of need. now is your chance to help…
