'Lacrosse Out Cancer' Has Special Meaning for Lewis
On Saturday night, the Colorado Mammoth takes on the Toronto Rock and looks to “Lacrosse Out Cancer” by raising funds and spreading awareness of the disease. The Mammoth players will don special ‘I’m Playing For’ helmets with the names of fans and their family members who have been affected by cancer.
For Colorado goaltender Dan Lewis, this game has special significance. Lewis’ grandmother lost her long battle with cancer a month ago.
“Being able to get lacrosse involved and raise money for the cause is really big for me,” said Lewis.
The 23-year-old is confident that his teammates also appreciate the significance of the “Lacrosse Out Cancer” campaign.
“These guys don’t need a special reason to go out there and do what they do,” said Lewis, “but hopefully something like this gives them added meaning.”
This weekend, Lewis’ goalie helmet will bear the name “Grandma”.
