Waters has been dubbed "The Mighty Quinn" since he was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma a day after his third birthday. He's had brain surgery and undergone several rounds of chemotherapy since the diagnosis Feb. 11.

Coyle, and the Bruins mascot Blades, stopped by his house to provide some good cheer and also deliver stickers and a personalized jersey. Coyle also autographed a sign on the Waters lawn that says "Mighty Quinn For The Win Against Cancer." 

They also had a Nerf gun fight.

Coyle became the latest New England icon to voice his support for Quinn. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady shared a supportive post for him on Instagram, and the Dropkick Murphys stopped by to perform their hit "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" on his front yard.
