Alex Pappas Surgery

Yesterday in Brazil Alex went for a surf at lunch time. He caught some good waves and at the end of one of the waves he dove off his board and hit the bottom .   He inadvertently fractured his C5 vertebrate.   He is in pain and preparing for surgery.  Right now he can move his extremities but has some numbness and tingling in his fingers.  Hopefully, with surgery he will recover 100% but the cost of surgery will be very expensive.  Any help you can provide will help take the worry out of medical expenses so Alex can focus on a full recovery.  Thank you in advance and please feel free to share.
