Fundraiser for Monty

Fundraiser for Monty

I am not sure if anyone is aware, but Dustin McIntyre the owner/manufacturer of GATKU spears has been fighting for his little boy Montyís life again.

In October of last year Monty underwent brain surgery to remove a golf ball size tumor from his head. Everything looked really good, and after chemotherapy the expectation was that he would be cancer free.

Unfortunately within 2 weeks of finishing his treatments the cancer started growing back. Monty is currently in Houston, TX undergoing radiation treatments that will hopefully be the answer to all of our prayers and help him make a full recovery.

The expenses associated with the treatment and his mother temporarily residing in TX are getting astronomical.

This is where we all come in. Crist Spears is auctioning off a 5í 1 piece pole spear to raise money for Monty.

I am asking for help for Dustin and his family. If you have gear you could auction off and donate the proceeds to Montyís cause, if you can donate monetarily, or have a service you can offer and donate those proceeds from that would be great. Letís think outside the box, Iím sure we all have something we can do to help Dustin, post services, gear, (diving related or not). A BBQ with a small cover charge that can be donated, a fun dive competition with proceeds/prize money going to DustinÖ..Iím sure we can think of other things! Letís pull together this little boy needs us!

Dustin would never ask for this kind of help and as a community of spearboarders that have come together for so many good causes I canít think of anything more appropriate or worthwhile than this. If you have any questions or want updates on Monty just ask, and weíll see what we can do!

Thanks in advance for your help! This tight knit community is where itís at for our members!
