Phantoms In The Community:

The Lehigh Valley Phantoms hosted their first Very Important Phantom of the season, welcoming 11-year-old, Carsen. Carsen was diagnosed with medullablastoma, a type of brain cancer, in July 2014. He went through six weeks of daily chemo and radiation, then six treatments of monthly chemotherapy. On Sunday, he received a tour of the locker room, where a special customized jersey was waiting for him signed by his favorite player, Colin McDonald. Carsen greeted the team as they took the ice and dropped the puck before the game. Carsen is currently four years in remission!
