Thank you to everyone for your support.  It is wonderful to see our hockey community all come together to
help a family in need.  Children should not have to battle cancer.  Its nice to see that Marcus is not battling alone.
The whole Clarington Toros organization  and Lakeshore hockey partners are in his corner!!
