Abe Teter Cancer

Former pro Abe Teter needs our help to battle cancer

Once again, cancer has reared its ugly head into snowboarding.

Former pro and Hannah Teter’s older brother, Abe Teter, was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of skin cancer called Basil Cell Carcinoma, which began around has eye and has since spread across his body.

The oldest of five siblings in the Teter family, Abe was the person who first introduced his brothers and sisters to snowboarding and eventually built a solid career as a pro rider in the early 2000s. He excelled in the halfpipe, launching airs that were beyond impressive given the size of a walls in those early years. In the words of Pat Bridges, “Abe Teter was one of those rare riders who made watching snowboarding more fun than actually doing it.”

Since leaving professional snowboarding in the 2000s, Abe was married and is the father of two children. His family is asking for any help to alleviate the medical costs of cancer treatment and related costs. He is far from being out of the woods, but any donations are greatly appreciated.

We’re all pulling for you Abe.
