6 months into our relationship- 6 years ago- my partner was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis which was later changed to crohn's fibromyalgia (incurable pain all over the body); he is 22 years old and I am 23 today; I am currently a student nurse and as soon as my bills, rent, food and travel are paid I put all my money to the side for his treatment- as well as this I have asked friends and family and also held my own bake sales in the hospital I work in as well as my university however I am still short of £9,575.00 for his treatment and hence decided to try crowdfunding. I cannot live without this guy and all his steroidal treatments, immune suppressing treatments and biological therapies have failed and all that's left to try are multiple surgeries over the next few years which will cost more than any of us can afford, however next year I graduate and will be able to earn more money to support us. I will forever appreciate and be grateful for anyone's and everyone's help and if you can't give money just a prayer is fine too. He is unaware of the money I have raised/ am raising for his treatment and it will be a surprise for him, some happiness that he could really do with in life. If I could trade places with him, I would and it hurts my heart that I can't cure him, however I can do my best to try and give him the things he needs. Once upon a time when he was fully healthy and able he shared his love with the world and donated as much as he possibly could to good causes and charity through this same website and now I want to do the same for him. I will post updates as things change and his reaction to when he receives the money for his treatment. Any extra will be passed on to further charities suggested in the comments below. xxxxxxxx
