Jake Burton Carpenter Begins Battle with Cancer for the Second Time

Today we are taking a moment to send our love, support and positive vibrations to Jake Burton Carpenter. You got this and we’re all in your corner. This from Jake over the weekend:

“You will not believe this, but my cancer has come back. It’s the same tumor as the first time around. We just never got rid of it all. A bit of it hung out in my lymph nodes and got back into business.

The odds are in my favor, but it is going to be a struggle for sure.

As much as I dread what is facing me, it’s easier to deal with when you know that you have a family that will carry on.

I feel the same way about my company, my friends and our sport. I will be back, but regardless, everything is in good hands which is an amazing feeling when entering this zone of uncertainty.”
