In memory of Johnny Romano
Johnny was a young skater who caught the skateboard industry´s heart with his love for skateboarding.
He had been battling cancer for a few years and became friends with Real Skateboards founder Jim Thiebaud as well as the people over at The Berrics.
Jim wrote about Johnny´s passing on the Deluxe site, where people are also leaving comments.
I bet The Berrics will have something about Johnny´s death in a few hours on their dedicated Johnny Romano site.
There is also a website where you can donate to the Johnny Romano Relief Fund.
I can´t imagine how much it would cost to be in and out of the hospital for as many years as Johnny was. Sometimes you forget how good we have it in Scandinavia were this treatment would be free.
Johnny and his family also have a blog. His brother Joey posted a very moving post today.
