Paralympic snowboarding legend Bibian Mentel, who was one of the main people to get snowboarding on the Paralympic program and who has kicked cancer's ass 15 (!) times, has been told by doctors that this time they can't treat her anymore, and she should probably start saying her goodbyes :cry:

She was about to qualify for Salt Lake in 2002 aged 27 and then got bone cancer, followed by years and years of new bouts of cancer and dominating the world of para-snowboarding in between.

Three weeks after the previous post, and things went as horribly fast as they go with this....her family has just announced the death of Bibian Mentel, 48 years old. Truly one of the most well-known and well-liked athletes in the Netherlands (granted, not so much because of her athletic career, but more because of her fame on TV in recent years), and an absolute legend in parasports in general.
