The Story

Daniel is the vibrant three year old son of Stu and Lisa Weissman, and younger brother of Ryan.  This past winter, Daniel started experiencing symptoms which prompted his pediatrician to order an MRI be performed.  On March 2nd, immediately following the MRI, the Weissmans were informed of the devastating news that Daniel had been living with a malignant brain tumor for quite possibly, 18 to 24 months of his 39 months alive.  From that very moment, Daniel and the Weissmans began their battle against cancer.  The tumor was removed 2 days later and his prognosis is good, but they have a very long, challenging road ahead.  

The Weissmans have health insurance, however, the out of pocket medical expenses are sure to be significant as Daniel's treatment plan will span years, many hospital stays, specialists, numerous procedures and rehabilitation facilities.  As parents of a hockey player, the Weissmans should know we would never let them fight alone!  All funds raised through this fund will go directly to the Weissman's for use towards Daniel's medical expenses, medications and overall care for Daniel as he fights this battle.  Thank you for your support.

Wanted to give a BIG shout out to Daniel's local neighbors and friends for holding an amazing Lemonade Stand and Bake Sale that raised $1,050, not including a 15 pound bag of pennies that was donated (the bank is working on that count!).  Neighborhood kids and parents baked, made lemonade and created homemade signs all to support Daniel!  Their effort was very inspiring!  Thank you all for all your hard work!!

If you have a squirt or peewee player, sign them up to play! All are welcome to come watch, have fun, and drop the gloves to fight cancer! The registration form and details are in the attached link. Look forward to seeing you all!
