Help Me Help My Dad with #AdvancedParkinsons

Donation protected
Hello my friends,

With a sad heart, I’m sharing with you that my dad, Richard, has been diagnosed with advanced Parkinson’s Disease. Being an only child, I need to make the move back to South Carolina to help my mom with the day-to-day care of my dad.

My decision was not easy, but I need to leave the surf industry I love to care for my family. It's been an emotional decision, but it's the right one to make.

This GoFundMe account is primarily to cover the expenses of my cross-country move. It will also give me some time to find a new profession outside of the surfboard industry.

Please pray for all of us as we adjust to this new reality. My family & I thank you for your help and appreciate your generous donation.

Please SHARE with your friends and on social media. Thank you all in advance & I’ll keep you updated on my move.

Humbled & Grateful
Yours Truly,
