I apologize to all that are reading that this is not a Leaf related blog. As a matter of fact, it is not even a hockey related blog today. Unfortunately I a writing this today for a reason that I never thought I would have to. Every now and again you wake up in the morning and the world just punches you in the stomach, today was one of those days.
As I was sitting through an afternoon of work, it was brought to me and most of my colleagues attention that one of our coworkers daughter has a brain tumor. The news did not get any better from there, as the information was provided that the location of the tumor made it impossible to operate on and chemotherapy would not be effective in treating it. The prognosis is that this young girl may have only a few weeks to a few months left to live. I will admit that while I am not close with this particular person, I have never had something like this happen so close in my life before. It feels far too real.
I am asking anybody that gets the opportunity to read this today to please visit miracle4maddie.bbnow.org to get more information on what you could do to help. I once again apologize for using this space for non hockey related reasons today, but this is the only way I figure I can help this young girl out. Thanks again for your readership and for your support
