In February, for Fox Motor's Hockey Fights Cancer Month, Emersen will be skating to honor the memory of his beloved hockey treadmill coach Drew Brown. Drew played hockey for Providence College when he suffered a leg injury. an MRI showed he had form of cancer known as Ewing Sarcoma. He was treated with surgery on his leg and chemo, but in May of 2016 the cancer had spread to his lungs. Drew continued to fight until the cancer overtook his body and he passed in November of 2017. Drew was Emersen's hockey treadmill coach from June 2016 until his passing.
Emersen looked up to Drew, as you can only imagine, as Drew was an amazing hockey player with his whole career ahead of him. Drew was definitely a strong, positive, and encouraging role model for Emersen. They talked hockey and fishing and instead of dreading the treadmill sessions, Emersen looked forward to them. Drew pushed Emersen to his limits and helped him become a better player. When he passed Emersen's heart broke.
When Emersen is having a rough game he thinks "what would Drew do?"...Drew would be positive, encourage his team mates, and be a leader! We have definitely seen Emersen do just that in this current hockey season. Drew had an immeasurable impact on Emersen's life. We are proud of his choice to honor Drew's memory and skate for him next month.
We thank you for supporting this cause as this year cancer has hit so close to home.
Byron, Tina, Emersen, and Avarey
