Welcome and thank you for checkin' me out.
Over three years ago when I was battling cancer and at my worst, Ryan Jones and Dean Arsene came to visit the Cancer Clinic I was staying at. Cheering the patients up and inspiring them as well as themselves. They visited me first and I was such an emotional mess, but they reversed that in an instant and we laughed and had fun as they taunted me for being a Habs fan. xD
Three years later, I asked for a Ryan Jones jersey for my birthday as a sign of gratitude towards him and his teammate, for saving me emotionally that gave me the courage the fight for my life. I’ve been in remission since Christmas 2010 and my health has been fantastic since. Hopefully, I’ll be cancer free next year. I will proudly wear this at my next Oilers game and then on for the rest of my life.
