Surf community please help Hamish

This is where we ,THE SURFING COMMUNITY AND FRIENDS, show our love. The surfing ohana, shapers, friends and family please come together to help HAMISH GRAHAM, who was released from the hospital on Wednesday after 2 weeks. He had advance care and major heart surgery on his mitral valves and was released from ICU with instructions to do nothing but get better. He still has some heart issues that we are working on diligently so isn't completely out of the woods. He will need constant medications, blood work up for blood thinners and a few other medications. As most of the  surfers, shapers etc. know, Hamish is an independent shaper. He is a one man show. He does not have insurance and we really need to help. This was a life-saving operation and I am happy to say he is jonesing to get in that shaping bay (dr.s orders are very strict to his dismay).  But he is happy to be amongst  us!

His recover is paramount on how quickly his can come back to work to pay his bills and to continue his passion of shaping his world renowned boards. He needs his rest and get his heart rate regulated. Until then cards or emails would be best until he can get the sleep he lost in the hospital
