Checking in with Adam Popp

I've been wondering lately how Adam Popp is doing, and some readers have asked as well. Adam is the young surfer who is battling testicular cancer. He used to work at Surfside Sports and Duke and Paul helped raise money for his medical bills.


I'm happy to report some good news just in time for Christmas Eve. I asked him how he is feeling and also if he was able to pay his medical costs.


Here's the latest directly from Adam:

Adam Popp surf"I am doing really well so far. I got my first CAT scan results the beginning of December and Dr. Mahdavi at Hoag Hematology and Oncology said I am still clear of cancer. I was so happy to hear that and feel so fortunate to have the support of so many. I have been surfing Newport a bunch, when we have waves that is. LOL. And it just feels great to be back doing the things I used to.

"The (fundraising) bracelets have helped a ton and there was a benefit held at Lido Theatre in November that helped a lot too. My deductible for my insurance was pretty high and I unfortunately haven't been able to pay the entire cost. My father was able to cover the cost, but I have not been able to pay him back yet, since so many living expenses kept adding up for me as well.

"I am going to the gym quite a bit to regain muscle and endurance and am looking to start a full time job with my degree in advertising or marketing, so if you hear of any opportunities that would be great:) I really appreciate the support and could you please tell the readers that asked about me thank you."
