Friends.....My Lifelong Friend and Legend JP Marengo recently had a potentially life-altering surfing accident. JP was doing the thing he loves the most and doing it better than most when he struck his head on the reef.

JP was knocked unconscious while under the water and temporarily paralyzed. If not for the quick actions of close friends, Lifeguards and EMTs, JP could potentially no longer be with us. They responded incredibly fast, and JP was whisked off to the hospital to be treated.
Upon arrival, JP had little to no use of his limbs. Over the last three weeks, JP has made tremendous progress. He still has immobility in his left arm but is getting better daily. He still faces a reasonably long recovery and physical therapy, but the long-term prognosis is optimistic.

As a result of his injuries, JP has been unable to work and, as you can imagine, is incurring some significant medical bills. Any help is greatly appreciated and would go a long way to getting JP back to work and back in the water.
