COMMUNITY: Ava shines bright on Hockey Fights Cancer night

Toque sales from Sunday's game to help kids affected by cancer return to normality through the BrainWorks Program and Kids with Cancer Society.

EDMONTON, AB ­- As kids, many of us couldn't wait to grow up and live out our childhood dreams.

For youth fighting for their life at the Kids with Cancer Society, they're forced to grow up too fast.

"I don't know too many adults who can take on what these kids take on. It's so beautiful to watch," Melissa Bandi, mother to Ava DeGannes, a 13-year-old battling cancer, said. "I think the worst part as a parent is you can't help them, and you have to answer questions like, 'Will I die?'"

"These kids become adults very quickly," Val Figliuzzi, Executive Director of the Kids with Cancer Society, explained. "A lot of them endure in a very short period of time what adults won't ever have to face, and they take it in stride."

Taking it in stride with hope on their mind.

EDMONTON, AB - Oilers defenceman Adam Larsson revealed the inside of his jet-black blazer, showing his name embroidered above the pocket on the left side surrounded by a pocket watch pattern of gold and black.

The momentous occasion of honouring Joey Moss, who has been a staple in the Oilers dressing room for 35 years, required an extra-special touch.

"I actually got it today, so I would say it's a special suit for a special night," Larsson said. "Every time he walks into the locker room, everyone gets in a good mood. He brings a lot of happiness and a lot of fun moments, and I think just seeing how happy he is around the team makes everybody smile a bit more."

The Swedish blueliner was among Oilers alumni, players and special guests at Rogers Place on Thursday night as members of the best-dressed crowd in Edmonton for the 2018 Iron & Frost Gala, this time in support of the Edmonton Down Syndrome Society (EDSS) and Special Olympics Edmonton (SOE).
