On Friday, January 29, 2016, the Port Huron Prowlers and Lake Huron Medical
Center are hosting “Fight Like A Kid” Childhood Cancer Awareness
Night at the Prowlers game at McMorran Arena.
Named the “Best In Cancer Care” by the Commission on Cancer,
Lake Huron Medical Cancer Center recognizes that cancer affects people
of all ages and stages of life. “Fight Like A Kid” will promote
childhood cancer awareness as well as provide area residents information
and education about oncology services offered locally. Special activities,
including chuck-a-puck, silent auction, and a specially designed jersey
auction will be offered to raise funds for cancer research and support.
Tickets for the game are $10 each and are available for purchase through
the Lake Huron Medical Center Marketing Department. Prowlers' players
will also make a visit to Lake Huron Medical Center to sell tickets on
January 26 and 27 from 11 am to 1 pm. Tickets can also be purchased online
at phprowlers.com or the evening of the game at the arena. A $3 donation
will be made for every ticket sold.
Proceeds from this event will be donated to the ChadTough Foundation and
the Lake Huron Foundation. The ChadTough Foundation funds research and
raises awareness for Pediatric Brain Tumors with an emphasis on Diffuse
Intrinsic Pontine Glioma. Lake Huron Foundation's oncology fund provides
support to oncology patients treated through the Lake Huron Medical Cancer Center.
"As leaders in cancer care, it is important that we as a medical facility
work to bring awareness of all cancers, treatment options and continued
health care, regardless of the patient's age," states Dr. Kanu
Dalal. "Supporting the awareness of pediatric cancers provides additional
opportunities for our community and neighbors to find the medical answers
they are looking for from high quality, compassionate physicians who are
dedicated to providing life-saving care."
Lake Huron Medical Center is proud to support the Port Huron Prowlers in
their inaugural season in the Blue Water Area. Committed to providing
medical coverage to the players during hockey games, Lake Huron Medical
Center and Medical Group are taking this partnership as an opportunity
to raise awareness for childhood cancer as well as oncology services and
support offered locally through the Lake Huron Medical Cancer Center.
