A 25-year-old Canadian skater, Jesse Smith, who posts here as Spazactaz, is suffering from cancer and has taken a turn for the much worse. He is posting about his situation in Off the Beaten Track.
This article from over a year ago talks about how important Jesse has been in his local skating club and how the club is trying to help him now.
