This is not the time for jokes. Jake Burton Carpenter has been diagnosed with cancer. The 57-year old founding father of Burton Snowboards has been diagnosed with testicular cancer and is up for three months of chemo-therapy.According to Jake, who sent out a worldwide memo to his staff, it was diagnosed in an early stage, which really ups the survival rate. Approximately 95% of the men diagnosed with this in an early stage are cured, so we can only wish the best for Jake. Our sincerest wishes!
Jake in the early days.
