APRIL'S SURFEBRUARY

A few weeks ago I found out my poppy got diagnosed with cancer in his oesophagus. He is very close to my heart and I don’t want anything to happen to him.  My Poppy is amazing, he ALWAYS comes in the pool with us even if its raining. He always gives big hugs and yummy treats.

I felt really scared and sad when my mum told me he had cancer. Cancer is shit,  (my mum said I could say that) and has made me feel like I need to do surfebruary more than ever and raise as much money as I can. 


I love hanging out with my dad in the ocean and catching the best waves, I did it last year and had the most amazing time and I am sure it will be the same as last year. I am very excited for this year but there are always pro’s and con’s pro’s: surfing, hanging with my dad and going to the beach and con’s waking up in the morning, getting smashed by waves but that will not stop me from surfing.

Please Donte if you can or Join me for a surf one day.

From April 🏄🏻‍♀️🤙🏽

Dear April, Pleasure for us to assist with our donation. May God shower his mercy upon your Poppy today, remove all the pains, and fully heal him. I pray that God will grant your Poppy the courage and strength to overcome this illness Inform your Poppy - A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
