Meet the San Diego: Life. Changing. Staycation Winner

Tony Mercuriali’s life changing moment means a cancer-free future




Partner Content

In early December, we partnered with San Diego: Life. Changing. to give one lucky winner the ultimate San Diego staycation. The contest received hundreds of entries but none was more moving than Tony Mercuriali, whose wife entered on his behalf when he beat stage 3 testicular cancer. After being diagnosed in February, Tony went through three surgeries and three rounds of chemotherapy. In June, his doctors gave him the good news – he was cured and cancer free.

Tony wins the ultimate San Diego staycation which includes packages from The Pendry Hotel, The Catamaran Spa, San Diego Zoo and much more. For more life-changing moments, visit Instagram.

San Diego: Life. Changing. is all about telling real stories of San Diegans who are making an impact on the world and upgrading their own lives by choosing to live in San Diego. By telling San Diego’s authentic story, we hope to show that San Diego really is the best place to live and work, not just to vacation.
