Hockey Fights Cancer

30 10 2011

This is a topic that always hits home for both S & I–so when I saw this, I couldn’t help but ‘aww’ and let a few tears slip out.

13 year old Lawson Frank is battling a rare cancer & was asked to be apart of the ceremonial ‘Hockey Fights Cancer’ puck drop on Saturday night. Chicago Blackhawks v. Columbus Blue Jackets. I just want to run up and kiss every Blackhawk I see for taking the time to do this. They probably have no idea how much this meant to this little boy. It’ll most definitely be something he will remember for the rest of his life.

If my heart swells any more-- it'll explode.

This video just kills me. Click here to watch.

Take a guess as to who's stick he's holding...

Hint: Jonathan Toews is his role model…

PS — if Toews ever Looked in my direction — i’d probably die. This kid’s life was just made by his role model… I’m so proud.
