Hockey Fights Cancer has been a tradition in the NHL for the last 17 years. Every team has a night where they honor survivors, patients, and those who have lost the fight against cancer.
The Capitals have designated next Wednesday night’s game (October 28th) against the Penguins as their Hockey Fights Cancer night. This year has a bit more of a personal touch to the Washington Capitals organization. As you may recall, last month assistant coach Lane Lambert lost his wife, Andi to an aggressive and rare form of breast cancer.
We here at Nova Caps have launched a charitable initiative to support the survivors, those currently fighting cancer, and/or the families affected by the loss of a loved one to this terrible disease. We would ask you to join us in either going to HockeyFightsCancer.com and making a donation, or comment below with suggestions on what we can do for those directly affected by this disease.
We will take your suggestions into consideration and determine the next steps in moving forward with this initiative. We all have been touched by this wretched disease, and we have to keep on fighting for a cure.
