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. http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?88899-My-cancer-situation 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. http://www.fortmacleodgazette.com/2012/fort-macleod-club-rallies-to-support-figure-skater/ I have confirmed with the club that the fund is still active. Here is how to make donations if you feel moved to help. A Facebook page has also been set up for Jesse with some vids of his elegant skating. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Help-Support-Jesse-Smith/191597000952422 Please do what you can! Jesse has also posted his mailing address in the OTBT thread in case you would like to send cards directly to him.
