Charlestown game to benefit Brody

Charlestown will host Corydon Central in a Mid-Southern Conference game on Saturday.

The game also will be a benefit for Brody Curtis — the son of Charlestown High School math teacher Heather Curtis. Brody was born on May 24, 2011, with a very rare, serious and life-threatening skin condition called Recessive Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa. Brody is missing the protein in his skin that holds it together. When he was born, he was missing skin on his arms, hands, legs and feet.

Children born with EB are called “butterfly children” because their skin is as fragile as butterfly wings. Because of this, Brody must be wrapped from his neck down to help protect his skin from wounds and infections. At this time, there is no cure for EB.

Brody’s extensive medical treatment is very expensive, as many doctors’ appointments are required for Brody at both Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, in addition to the many medications he is required to take.

Charlestown High School encourages fans to come out and support the Pirates, as well as Brody on Saturday.
