Surfing for hope
The Pure Stoke Youth Program provides a safe, fun environment, utilizing the healing energy of the beach and ocean in which these young victims can find an outlet to help them deal with the stress of a family member with cancer.

The goal of our program is to recognize and provide support to what we believe is an often overlooked group of cancer victims: adolescent and teenage children whose family members are going through the cancer fight.
Although children who are living with family members fighting cancer and who are old enough to understand the consequences of their parent’s plight are generally overlooked by the medical cancer support community. These young secondary victims are usually not able to attend office visits and therefore do not feel part of the team. They can have a sense of helplessness as they see the pain and suffering of their parent going through the cancer battle. They are also witness to the emotional strain of the other parent who is trying to support their sick spouse.
