Lee Bender woke up one mourning and couldn't move- literally. They took him to the hospital and he was diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis). He lost a lot of his equilibrium, got really sick, started treatment that will last the rest of his life and he wasn't able to skate anymore. He was sessioning one day then he was done the next. I don't mean for this to sound so cryptic but it's how it went down. Lee soon moved from Phoenix to Indianapolis to be closer to friends and family and to start treatment in Chicago. So far there's no cure, but Lee has found an experimental treatment in Europe that has a 80% success rate. And of course it's illegal in the US, probably cause they haven't figured out how to make millions on it. Well Lee, with the help of Cow Town skates in AZ., Real Skateboards, Lance Mountain and friends and family are trying to raise money to get him to Europe. The whole things going to cost him around $12,000. If you've never donated money to anything then here's your chance. $5? $10? Or more if you can. As skaters we have to stick together- it's what makes us us, and not them. Go to Lee's blog, onesickrace.com to donate.

HERES THE DEAL. THERES A POTENTIAL CURE FOR M.S. THAT THE GOVERNMENT, BIG PHARMA COMPANIES, RADIOLOGIST, NEUROLOGISTS ETC DONT WANT US WITH MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS TO KNOW ABOUT... ITS CALLED THE LIBERATION PROCEDURE OR CCSVI IF YOU WANT TO RESEARCH IT, THERE IS A FACEBOOK PAGE FOR IT. ITS WORKED FOR A FEW HUNDRED LUCKY PEOPLE, MAYBE A THOUSAND NOW, OVER SEVERAL YEARS IN ITALY AND OTHER PARTS IN EUROPE WHERE A HANDFUL OF TRULY HELPFUL DOCTORS ARE MAKING HUGE PROGRESS WITH THIS DISEASE. LONG STORY SHORT. A FRIENDS FRIEND GOT IT DONE AND SHE MORE OR LESS HAD ALL OF HER SYMPTOMS REVERSED AND IS BACK TO A NORMAL ROUTINE LIFE. NO LIMITATIONS ANYMORE. THE PROCEDURE COST A LITTLE MORE THAN 10 GRAND. TRENT AND LAURA OF COWTOWN SKATEBOARD SHOP IN PHOENIX ARIZONA ARE GETTING MY TICKET OVER THERE, SO THATS GOOD TO GO. JIM AT REAL SKATEBOARDS IS GETTING SOMETHING ELSE TOGETHER TO GET GOING TO RAISE SOME MONEY. MY GIRLFRIEND, TRACY SO IS GOING TO ORGANIZE A FUND RAISER IN SAN FRANCISCO HERE SOON, JUB IS GOING TO BUY AN OLD BIKE,, FIX IT UP AND SELL IT FOR ME AND THERES A FEW OTHER THINGS IN THE WORKS. IF I COULD GET THE SENSATION IN MY HANDS AND FEET BACK, MY BALANCE BACK, MY COGNITIVE FUNCTION DISORDER TAKEN CARE OF AMONGST A FEW OTHER THINGS, I WOULD BE STOKED TO SAY THE LEAST. REALLY IF THE PROGRESSION OF THE DISEASE JUST STOPS, IM HYPED. I JUST DONT WANT TO END UP IN A WHEEL CHAIR. THAT LIFE IS NO LIFE FOR ME... I HATE ASKING FOR MONEY, BUT IF YOU GOT PENNIES CHILLIN YOU CAN SPARE... I GUESS IM SPARIN FOR CHANGE. FUCK IT. THANK YOU.
