The month of October not only marks the beginning of the 2009-10 season but also is designated as Hockey Fights Cancer Month. Throughout the month, which is sponsored by OSI Pharmaceuticals, the Islanders will look to increase cancer awareness by telling the inspirational stories of the numerous cancer survivors that support the team.
If you or someone you know was diagnosed with any form of cancer and has beaten the life threatening disease, we would like to recognize you. Submit the inspirational story along with a picture (.jpg format) of the survivor and contact information including, name, town, phone number, e-mal address and what form of cancer you or the person you are submitting for, survived from. The collection of stories will take place from August 20th through September 20th. Starting on October 1st, one story from the collection will appear each day on the website.
Every submission has a chance to win 4 tickets to the October 28th Hockey Fights Cancer Game (tickets are courtesy of Cancer Treatment Centers of America).
*By submitting an entry you are giving permission to the New York Islanders Organization to place picture/story on the website and for in-game usage.
*Stories will be chosen and applicants will be contacted by the Islanders in timely fashion prior to the October 28th game.
