Hello, my name is Keith Brewer and I'm fundraising for our dear friend, Greg Browning, who has recently been diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). ALS is also known as Lou Gehrig's disease: A nervous system disease that weakens muscles and impacts physical function. In this disease, nerve cells break down, which reduces functionality in the muscles they supply. The cause is unknown. The main symptom is muscle weakness. Medication and therapy can slow ALS and reduce discomfort, but there's no cure.
My brother and I grew up with Greg in the South Bay (Manhattan and Hermosa Beach, CA). We honed our surfing skills at 16th St, Hermosa Beach with the help of our good friend, Howard Eddy, who would film all of us, every day, twice a day. Not only did Greg out-surf everyone in the South Bay by winning multiple amateur contests, he went on to have a successful career as a nationally recognized free-surfer. He is a member of the Momentum Generation- with Kelly Slater, Rob Machado, Shane Dorian, Ross Williams, The Malloys, and more. He had several segments in the most popular hardcore surf movies of the 90's.
Throughout Greg's surfing career, he was always interested in editing surf movies, after learning from Howard Eddy. He released several local underground videotapes featuring my brother and I, along with other local rippers. He worked with Taylor Steele editing and picked it up pretty well, creating the hit series Drive Thru!
Greg is one of the most giving people I have ever met and we would love to give back to him. We would love for him to live a stress-free life and have all of his future medical bills taken care of. Please help us in raising funds for one of the best Humans ever!
Keith and Derek Brewer
