    There are figure skating judges, and then there's Laura Maki.

    Five months ago -- the weekend before Maki was diagnosed with Stage 3 peritoneal cancer -- she drove to Ohio to judge a competition. She wanted to get her mind off her illness.
    Just thought this was an interesting human interest story. Praying for a speedy recovery!

    Toni, thanks for posting that. Sometimes we forget what people go through in life. And, sometimes, as fans, we forget that figure skating isn't just about winning the Olympics...
