The RINK Training Centre, 91 Lowson Crescent, Winnipeg
To HELP save lives!
Mandi Schwartz was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (cancer of the bone marrow) in December 2008. After 5 rounds of chemo, she was cleared and was cancer-free. After being cleared, Mandi began to rebuild her white blood cell count in order to begin training for hockey again. In the meantime, she attended University of Saskatchewan for a semester while she was recovering. Mandi then returned to Yale University as a student (no hockey yet) in January 2010. Two-thirds of the way through that semester, she started to feel sick again and her intuition was right; the cancer had returned. She left Yale for the second time on April 22nd, 2010 and returned to Regina, where she is now going through chemo while a bone marrow matched is sought out.
We will be holding a two-day charity hockey event at The RINK, July 6th, and 7th. It will include a round-robin tournament format on Tuesday evening followed by the finals on Wednesday evening.
