The Pleasure Point Aloha Benefit Contest By WetFeetPhoto

Marciano “Chango” Cruz” a dear friend of  Santa Cruz , Pleasure Point and the Californian Surfing Community recently experienced a serious health event.  He had an ear infection which was causing him great pain and was eventually taken to Dominican Hospital. Upon the initial assessment of his condition they quickly admitted him and scanned his head.  When the got the results they immediately transferred to Stanford where they rushed him into surgery.  They had to operate on his ear to remove clean out the infection which had also spread to the interstitial space between the skull and brain.  They removed all of the infection and bony growth from his ear, placed him on IV antibiotics and transferred him back to Dominican where he stayed for a 10 days of observation.

The surgery went well but now he has a long dangerous road of 6 weeks of IV & oral antibiotics to kill all of  the infections.  Chango does not have health insurance and is trying to get some help from the state so he is going to have some significant expenses as well his ability to work is limited while undergoing his IV Antibiotic treatment.

Friends of Marciano with help from Big Stick Surfing Association are organizing a fund raising benefit contest for him at the Point. To make a donation please go to https://www.gofundme.com/Welovechango/
