Hockey Fights Cancer
Each year, the NHL celebrates “Hockey Fights Cancer” (HFC) during the month of November; and, even though there are no games as yet this season, we are privileged to join all NHL member clubs in celebrating the HFC program again this month.
Founded in 1998 by the National Hockey League® and the National Hockey League Players’ Association, Hockey Fights Cancer™ unites the hockey community in support of cancer patients and their families.
The initiative gets an assist from players, coaches, officials, equipment managers, front office staff, corporate partners, and fans. Together, the hockey family looks to inspire hope and courage for those who are living with, going through, and moving past cancer.
Hockey Fights Cancer in Pittsburgh will, once again, help the Mario Lemieux Foundation and the UPMC Hillman Cancer Center, and the Movember Foundation all provide a better quality of life for cancer patients, caregivers, and their families.
