HELP EDDIE GUILBEAU BEAT CANCER

  • subtitle: We've Got A Whole List Of Great Ways You Can Do Your Part To Help Eddie Get Well

After being diagnosed with Stage III testicular cancer in May, Melbourne Beach, FL, shredder Eddie Guilbeau immediately underwent surgery and began a grueling 12-week course of chemotherapy. The diagnosis and treatment alone were an incredibly heavy burden, but as an added kicker, Eddie is also uninsured and has been accumulating immense medical bills. But throughout the entire ordeal, he has remained positive, forward-thinking, and firmly focused on his number-one goal: beating cancer and getting back to normal. And luckily, he's not in this alone. The surf community has reached out to help him through a A GoFundMe.com online campaign that has raised almost $18,000 so far to help cover expenses. One of Eddie's sponsors, Tribu Sandals, is also donating 10% of all sales in the month of July directly to him. Meanwhile, Catalyst Surf Shop has special Eddie Guilbeau "Shred Cancer" T-shirts on sale for $20 each at their Melbourne and Cocoa Beach locations, with all proceeds going directly to the Guilbeau family. And on Saturday July 13th, the Shred Cancer Fundraiser will hit Captain Hiram’s waterfront restaurant and tiki bar at 1580 US-1 in Sebastian, FL, with a raffle, auction, two DJs, and live performances by several local bands, all adding up to one kick-ass party/fundraiser in support of Eddie. Then, on July 20th, Spectrum Surf Shop will host a benefit surf contest starting at 8:00 a.m. at Howard Futch Memorial Park at Paradise Beach, which is only fitting since the park is named after Eddie’s grandfather. So, obviously, there are tons of ways you can help Eddie. Just pick one and do your part. And most of all, be sure to send positive vibes and prayers Eddie's way. We most certainly will. Because around here, we stand up for our own. Get well, Eddie!
