"Faith and support got me to where I am today. I want to first thank God for saving me not once, but twice – to Him be the glory – for providing me with the best doctors and medical staff and blessing me with the world’s greatest support system. Huge thanks to my family for keeping me encouraged and not ever letting me give up, during the fight and even now. Thank you for loving me unconditionally and supporting all my dreams and goals. Thank you to my friends, old and new, who have inspired and motivated me – I wouldn’t be where I am today without any of you.
Giant shout out to my faithful event sponsors and supporters. Huge thank you to Dan, Kelly & the Sunrise Surfshop crew – you have been with me since day one. Thank you for reminding me I was a child with my first beach cruiser and helping me share that joy with children today.
Professional photography kudos to Brittany Elaine Purscell Photography and Jordan Elizabeth. Videography love and credit to Murphy Stidham Studios and Lacewood Films.
Lastly, thank you to the children and families that allow me to connect, share their journey and be a small light of joy in this dark time.
I love you all so much and thank God for placing you all in my life."
