WHY I'M DOING IT

My Brother Ado had 2 Melanomas recently removed at Lifehouse and is now being treated for skin cancer.

My wife Bree has also had a melanoma removed from her back at Lifehouse in the last year.

I am thankful for the care and support they both received at Lifehouse.

Each day in February I'm hitting the water for SurFebruary and raising funds for cancer research at Chris O'Brien Lifehouse.

The reality is that one in two of us will be affected by cancer in our lifetime. That’s a pretty big statistic. The good news is that we can make a tangible impact on how we treat cancer by contributing to innovative cancer research that benefits us all.

It only takes a minute to donate and anything you can give (no matter how big or small) will go a long way to helping people with cancer and their families.

Thank you, I really appreciate your support.

See you in the water!

Paul

DAY 11 NORTH CRONULLA

Sunday 11th Feb

Day 10 I went out the Alley at North Cronulla after work around 630. A nice strong rip made it fairly easy to get out. It was typical Alley rip bowl, really sucky and heavy 4ft. Swell still really lumpy after days of storms and strong southerly winds. Hopefully conditions improve tomorrow!
