If you are a surfer/board rider of any kind, you probably know of the beloved Al Merrick, shaper behind Channel Islands Surfboards, who's team is filled with almost every pro surfer you can think of.
His cute as a button granddaughter, Daisy Love Merrick is fighting the battle of her life against cancer.
At only eight years old, she has received 6 surgeries, 22 rounds of chemotherapy and 2 courses of radiation. I'm sure you're thinking what I'm thinking.. I wish we could all scoop her up in our loving arms and heal her just like that! Well, I am going to do what I can and you should too! Not only am I going to send her peace, and healing energy throughout each day, but I hope to make a paddle out at one of THESE locations in support of Daisy's battle. If you can't personally make a paddle out then maybe share the event by telling your friends, or posting on Facebook or Twitter. The paddle out for Daisy is happening in surfing communities all over the world on September 1st at 9AM.
We're all rooting for you Daisy Love, you just keep smiling pretty girl!
