Organizations providing health care on the Central Coast of California are invited to this year’s Cancer Resource Health Fair at Surfing for Hope Foundation’s 13th annual benefit weekend. The Surfing for Hope Foundation’s Longboard Surf Contest and Cancer Resource Health Fair will be held on Saturday, November 16th from 10am - 2pm in Pismo Beach, California. This event is designed to help inspire people challenged by cancer through the positive energy of surfing. During the surf contest there is a unique health fair at the Pismo Beach Pier with informative cancer related information and support groups represented (all prescreened by myself, Tom Spillane MD). 

Our community here on the central coast are always generous supporters of this event . Our non-profit beneficiaries and cancer related support groups will be represented as well. Most important in our mission is to educate and raise awareness of the myriad of resources available to patients as well as medical providers. Since 2012, Surfing for Hope has supported local services such as the Hearst Cancer Resource Center, Cancer Support Community, and our own Pure Stoke Youth Camp, which provides monthly surf clinics for children of families affected by a family member with cancer as well as two camps for cancer survivors. 

Your registration as a Cancer Resource Health Fair participant will include setup and breakdown of covered tent, a table and chair for your exhibit, and one ticket to the Benefit Dinner and Auction. All you have to do is show up! 

All information for participants is available on our website under Cancer Resource Health Fair. Spots for $2,000 and up are available, but space will be limited so we encourage you to reserve now. Thank you for your continued support, we could not have done this without you! 

Sincerely, Tom Spillane MD and Karen Allen MD
