Hello everyone my name is Stephanie padilla and I am Anthony's (chango's son) girlfriend. I grew up in Southern California and moved to Santa Cruz without knowing anyone. After I met Anthony and started dating him, Chango took me in as his own. He has helped support me, and show me nothing but love. Marciano, "chango", is a man with a big heart. He wants nothing more than to make the people around him happy and feel loved and cared for. He has a fast pace life that includes trying to find a new place to live for him and his mother. This all has been haulted by his health. Most of you know, but for those who don't, Chango was transferred to Stanford for a brain opperation. This was due to an infection, caused by surfers ear that spread to his brain. Since then, he has come out of surgery and is in recovery. He is still staying at Dominican so they can watch over him and take further care of our dear friend. Because of his long hospital stay, he has accumulated large medical bills and missed out on work. He is in need of financial help, and that is where we come in. This campaign is to help chango pay for his medical bills and living expenses. Any extra money left over will go towards finding a new place to call home for him and his mom. All money donated will go into a savings account that will then be withdrawn and given to Chango. If you have a loved one with surfers ear tell them to get it done before it gets worse. Due to the man being tough as nails and continuing to surf is now faced with a more serious issue. We all love chango and want to see him healthy and stress free. Thank you for your love and support.
