"Enjoying a night out with family and friends when you're in the midst of chemo treatments is a priceless gift," said Susan Bertrand, president & founder of Maureen's Hope Foundation. "Specifically, one of our patients, 19-year old-Lucas, came with his family and his brother, Ben, and said it inspired them to get back into hockey this year. The program is a win-win for all. Thank you to Adam Weitsman for the opportunity."
