Myself, Jordan and Jay would of been jumping out of a plane at 15,000ft. Not for a laugh but for someone very dear to us who we all love very much. Unfortunately this is now not an option due to Covid and this time of year. So as a quick idea Myself, Jordan and Jay will be bleaching our hair different colours.
My friend and my brother Curtis Partridge who is 28 years young, discovered a mole on his shoulder 18 months ago. The mole started to bleed and become very sore. After seeking advice from his doctor he was told he had a small legion of skin cancer (0.6mm).
This was removed successfully, but no further tests were conducted and he was given the all clear.
Fast forward to August 2020, Curt was diagnosed with stage 4 Metastatic Melanoma after long periods of not being seen due to Covid 19. It started out with a lump under his armpit, but after completing a CT scan it has spread to 4 vital organs and also his spine and brain.
As you can imagine the news for everybody close to Curt has been completely devastating. Normal family life is a thing of the past at the moment as everybody close to Curt is really struggling and doing all we can to help as much as possible and praying he gets better and back to full health.
Options for treatment are minimal, with chemotherapy only having a 5% chance of working and radiotherapy only an option on the spine and brain. But could be an option on the tumour under his armpit soon.
Curt underwent Immunotherapy. This was a 50% chance that it would take and start to help him, he had 2 treatments, but unfortunately it made him really ill and put him in hospital for over a week. The decision was taken to come off of the immunotherapy and be put on Targetive therapy. This is tablet form and will attack the proteins in the cancer and stop it growing and hopefully destroy it completely. From looking at research the cancer sometimes finds a way around this and starts to grow again. Unfortunately if we get to this stage and the cancer does find a way around this then we will need funds to be able to look at private treatment/clinical trials to help clear the cancer completely.
He is one of the strongest people I know and if anyone can get through this it's Curt. We will never stop believing in him.
The reasons for fundraising.......
Curt and Sasha have a 2 week old beautiful little girl named Faith, who has had non stop cuddles from her adorable sister Isobelle who is Curts step daughter. Things are extremely hard at the moment and no doubt things will continue to get harder. But as Curt is quite often very ill and concentrating on getting better these are very difficult times. Curt is obviously not working and Sasha is on maternity.
For all of you who have had the pleasure of knowing/meeting Curt you will all know how infectious, kind hearted and generous he is, he’s the life and soul of the party, he’s our Party Partridge and we want him to grow old with his beautiful little daughter and perfect family that he wanted for so long, and strived so hard to have.
The main reason is so we can look at getting him private treatment straight away.
We need to be able to have the funds there to look at private treatment/2nd opinions straight away if and when the time comes, by doing this and getting all you lovely people to donate whatever you can then we can help Curt and his family through this very difficult time.
Please please please all of our close friends and family get behind this as it will mean the world to Curt ❤
Please refrain from bombarding Curt with messages, this isn't his choice to do this and I know deep down he doesn't want this to happen. We have taken it upon ourselves to set up a Go Fund Me Page so we are prepared, and have all options available when needed.
If you would like to write a message to Curt please do so through the donation page.
And please find it in your heart to help our best friend.
Thank you so much.
