Founded in 1998 by the National Hockey League® and the National Hockey League Players' Association, Hockey Fights Cancer™ (HFC) 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.
November is Hockey Fights Cancer Month across the NHL. Hockey Fights Cancer will, once again, help the American Cancer Society provide a better quality of life for patients, caregivers, and their families.
