I stole this from Dave Hegstrom.    

Please keep Skate Master Tate in your thoughts & prayers, he's the source of heart and soul and positive energy, and always appreciates a good vibe or two...:

Attention skateboarders and fans-our good friend Gerry Hurtado aka SkateMaster Tate...Taters..Potato Head..Tate ..SMT.. @skatemastertate @gerryhurtado has fallen very ill and needs our positive support and loving prayer vibes badly! He is one of the most wonderful and caring brothers I've ever met in skateboarding and in life! Let's put our heads together our hands together and our hearts together and say a big big prayer for Gerry to get well!

Randy @ Flood Kontrol recently gave him his own deck....   I think Dennis Martinez was talking about somebody the other day that have liver cancer too, not sure if it is him though, it was kind of strange, we can't lose any skaters!  Get well Gerry!

I spoke with Randy this morning. From what he said, Gerry has cancer that has taken over his liver. He is having trouble with walking, eating, just to name a few. He is going to need a supreme prayer to kick this. He is a treasure in the skating history all on his own. And he is a very good dude !! positive vibes from all is good!!

Jim Grey posted this for Gerr..


Hey everyone thank you so much for stepping up and helping out. I have so much to say and will update again soon but wanted to thank you all for giving some love to Gerry who has given so much love to us all.

I just sat with his mom and arranged care on top of the basic hospice care so he can be looked after at all times and his mother will have help so she will not get overwhelmed with his care.

We just signed a contract giving Gerry's mom and Gerry continual care around the house, thanks to all of you.. Special thanks to GARY Achison for finding a fellow high school friend Rick Davis who owns a home health care business to go out of his was to get us what we need for the best care.. Thank all of you for making it possible..

The latest from Jim.

Yesterday was a rough day as Gerry's body is struggling to deal with all that it's been dealt.. 

Gerry was transported to the hospital in hopes he could be stabilized and is currently resting comfortably, but it appears the cancer is battling hard.. 

His friends rallying to his side has been and is so comforting to him, and the effort undertaken just to get all the forms notarized etc.. To get him to the hospital was quite an undertaking.. 

He is being well cared for with his girl Amy at his side and friends and relatives caring for him, singing with him, etc.. We've been by his side all night in the hospital. But it's not looking like an easy battle.. 

I will update you again soon and thank you all for helping him and his family.. more soon...
