It is with profound sadness and respect that we share news of the passing of our friend and ambassador, Bean Bowers, after his six-month battle with cancer. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bean’s wife, Helen, and his friends and family.

We’ll share more in the coming days. For now, you can read about Bean’s Battle in our previous post or visit Bean Fever, a site created by his friends to update everyone on his progress and raise funds to help pay for the medical expenses.
