LEE BENDER ACTIONS REALized - July 2010 January 26, 2015 10:42
Lee Bender is a life long skater who has been battling Multiple Sclerosis for over 4 years now. The disease greatly affect’s equilibrium and has made it impossible for him to skate. Lee’s only option was to continue taking expensive medications and living with the disease not knowing what would come next. When Lee found an experimental new procedure in Poland that was shown to alleviate the major symptoms of MS, he was ready to try, but needed the funds to be able to afford the bold new surgery.
Lance Mountain jumped in to help and kindly created the artwork for Lee’s ‘Down with MS’ Actions Realized board. A portion of the proceeds from the deck went directly to helping Lee receive the procedure in Poland and hopefully one day allowing him to skate again.
