I need your support! I am one of forty players playing in the world's longest hockey game to fight cancer outside in the elements. That's right 252 hours of hockey! Proceeds of the event will support cutting-edge cancer research and wellness programs at Roswell Park, Make-A-Wish WNY, Camp Good Days and Roswell Park and Oishei Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Program.
I am playing in support of my brother-in-law’s mother Cathy Jellison, who was diagnosed with breast cancer this past year. Cathy is a wonderful, strong woman with a loving and supportive family behind her -- we are all wishing her the very best this upcoming year. I am also playing for a dear family friend just recently diagnosed. As a Roswell Park employee, I've seen firsthand the toll that cancer takes on so many individuals and families from all walks of life. While these 11 days will be grueling, it's nothing compared to what Cathy and so many other have gone through. Funding is crucial to the research that will mitigate and eventually eradicate this terrible disease.
