Hockey vs Cancer Fighting for all Cancer Patients.


Hockey is a competitive & compassionate family sport.

We are a group of hockey players that have been fortunate to have remained healthy and continue the sport we love. We know others are not so fortunate and that’s why we want to give back.

With your help we can make life a little easier for those afflicted with cancer. We know there are organizations that collect money for cancer research. Our mission is not to help find a cure but to help the families struggling to pay their bills while fighting cancer.

Like everyone we hope for a cure but our fight is right now and this is the best way we know to battle this dreaded disease.

If you would like to know why we donate directly to patients and not cancer research you can read this article here. Where Do the Millions of Cancer Research Dollars Go Every Year?

We take your donations directly to the family. We give them money to pay the car payment, mortgage, electric bill, etc. The bills keep coming whether you can work or not. We want to help patients concentrate on getting better and nothing else. The fight is hard enough.

Although we are hockey players and many of the cancer patients come to us from other hockey players, we will help anyone we can. You do not have to be affiliated with hockey in any way to get help from Hockey vs Cancer.
