Hope all is well and he has a speedy recovery. I'm passing the word around.

Not sure what kind of surgery he is facing, but having had cervical spine surgery myself a few years ago, tell your buddy to look into all the options before accepting a solution. Fusion is pretty common but artificial discs or microsurgery are now also viable. I ended up flying to Pittsburgh to have Dr. Jho perform a microforamenotomy for me instead of a fusion. I was told by a neurologist to get to a surgeon within 48 hrs. Jho Institute for Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery

Hey Milo,
If he does end up needing fusion then tell him to try not to freak out too much. I broke my neck pretty badly and it is fused and bolted tight. BUT... I am still paddling and taking shots to the head when I go upside down. I got back into my boat 7 months after I broke my neck and worked my way up from from the playpark to my regular runs. My neurosurgeon told me it is stronger than it was before I broke it. It works fine, though the range of motion sucks (scouting over the shoulder from an eddy is a joke now) and it hurts.

I'm sure that some people milk a broken neck for all it is worth what with disability payments and pain pills and such... but there really isn't any reason he can't get that thing bolted up and start working on a comeback.

SO BUMMED and sorry to hear about this!

Milo - let me know if there is anything I can do to help - maybe I can go to Steve's house and take some photos of the boat to put on the buzz.

Melnick is a great individual ad paddler - if you can help him out by buying this boat, all his friends and paddling buddies here in CB would be grateful.

No exaggeration - he is a good looking man and ripped too - all the ladies here definitely take notice. So....win a date with Melnick by donating to the 'help Melnick fix his broken neck' fund.

Maybe offer a double date with the boat. Melnick and then another date with Milo, you would cover a wider market. From the younger ladies to the hot grandma types for Milo. Maybe milo can show you his "poison ivy love potion"
