100 HOLES OF GOLF IN ONE DAY FOR CHARLIE

£4,812 of £1,000 goal

Raised by 132 people in 10 days
Hello all, 
It’s very short notice but as this is my off week, I would love to try and raise some money for my good friend Charlie Crosby.
Please see below....

On Thursday morning, Charlie collapsed and was rushed to Barnet hospital by ambulance where they did a CT scan and found a bleed on his brain. They put him in an induced coma and rushed him to London Neurological Hospital where he has sent straight down for emergency surgery.

After 7 hours of surgery Charlie is now stable and slowly being brought out of the induced coma.
He had an AVM which ruptured deep in the left side of the brain. This is a condition that you are born with and you will not even know until this happens. It can happen to anyone of us at any time.
The staff have told us that Charlie is a real fighter and we are so proud of him. He is young and strong which will be in his favour but we still do not know how much damage has been done.

I am hoping that we can raise some money for Charlie and his family at this difficult time whether that be for train fares, hotels, private rehabilitation or whatever Charlie and his family need and want to put the money towards going forward.  They shouldn’t have to think about money at a time like this and it just proves how important life is and none of us know what is around the corner. 

On Monday June 9th, I will be playing 100 holes of golf at Beau Desert Golf Club starting at 6am and finishing whenever the 100 holes are complete. I was lucky to enough to meet this amazing family quite a few years ago at the European Father and Son Golf Championships where it’s fair to say Charlie and his dad Lee scored a few more points than me and my Dad!! Charlie helped me get through 1st stage of European Tour School this past year by caddying and he’s just one of them people who brings life to the room and is impossible not to love. He’s always smiling and I want to help get that smile back on his face as soon as possible. Whatever we can raise is a bonus and will help towards this family so please donate whatever you can.

Thank you!

UPDATE

The last few days have been really tough. Charlie remains unconscious and critically ill, he has been battling against swelling and fluid build up which has been causing dangerously high levels of pressure.
Thankfully the pressure seems to have plateaued at an acceptable level and now the sedation will gradually be reduced over the next few days.
Unfortunately it was discovered that while under very heavy sedation Charlie contracted an infection in his chest and has a collapsed lung.
This is being treated with very strong antibiotics and the staff have assured us that Charlie is still fighting hard.
I can't wait for the time that I can tell you that Charlie has started along the very long road of rehabilitation but for now we are having to take things one day at a time.
We would like to thank everyone once more for the amazing support and love that we have received which is helping is us to get through this and thank you on behalf of Charlie for all of the extremely generous donations to help to his recovery.

UPDATE

The last two days have been very tough. Charlie started Sunday morning positively but then very quickly went downhill. After a scan it was found that he had swelling on the brain which meant that he was rushed to the operating theatre for more emergency surgery to remove the bone from the left side of his skull to relieve the pressure.
Charlie was then monitored very closely and unfortunately as the pressure was still increasing he now needs even more surgery to fit a drain in his head to remove the build up of fluid which will be carried out this evening.
If this is successful then he will need a lot more rest under heavy sedation until he has recovered enough to have the assisted breathing tube removed.
We remain positive because we know that Charlie is fighting with all his might and the staff at this hospital are miracle workers. The care that Charlie is receiving here is incredible and we will be forever grateful. The amount of love and support from the messages that we have received has blown us away. Thank you all so much, it has given us the strength to carry on and be strong for Charlie ❤
