On November 8th, it’s Hockey Fights Cancer Night for Shane Doan and the Arizona Coyotes at Gila River Arena. For the Saturday night game against John Tavares and the New York Islanders, the Coyotes will be the next team to promote Hockey Fights Cancer.

Hockey Fights CancerOn October 14, the NHL launched its annual Hockey Fights Cancer awareness month and it will run through November 15. This month-long campaign is to bring awareness to organizations, both national and local, that are known for their cancer research and care programs. Since the beginning of HFC in 1998, they have donated over $14 million to organizations that are centered upon helping in the effort to benefit organizations such as children’s hospitals, cancer institutes and player charities.

Fans attending the game are encouraged to wear lavender and the first 10,000 fans will receive the “I Fight For” card to show support for those we know and love that currently suffer or have overcome cancer. The Coyotes will host patients from all over the valley on this night.

This year, the NHL is supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, ZERO – The Project to End Prostate Cancer, Prostate Cancer Canada, The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and the Movember Foundation.

You can support this cause by purchasing a “Hockey Fights Cancer” team shirt here or you can directly donate here.

Sports and fashion are Allison's true passions. She grew up in the household of a professional athlete, and a family blessed with true athletic talent. She, on the other hand, must have been absent on the day that sport skills were passed out! Although, she does possess a zeal that most girls do not have for sports of all kinds, hockey has consumed her life in the most unexplainable way. Sports are such an integral part of who she is, and she is on journey of becoming a part of a professional sports organization. Growing up minutes from the Las Vegas Strip didn't leave Allison with many options for being a sports fan.Spending the majority of her summers on the East Coast, Allison became a fan of all things Boston, and her heart will always have a special place for the city (especially the Bruins). Allison currently is an employee of the Arizona Coyotes and falls more in love with the game each and every day.
