Good News For Jake Burton’s Cancer Battle

After being diagnosed with testicular cancer in September of 2011, Jake Burton announces some hopeful news. Today, after months of chemotherapy, it appears that Jake is now cancer free and is looking ahead to many more years of riding powder.

“As I transition from being a patient to being a survivor, I move on with enormous respect for both cancer (‘The Emperor of Diseases’) and chemotherapy (how can something so beneficial be so simultaneously harmful).”

All of us at frequency TSJ are happy to hear the good news and hope for a speedy recovery for the man, the legend, the guru of snowboarding: Jake Burton.
