More than 200 guests were treated to a special afternoon with former hockey legends Mats Sundin, Tie Domi, Nicklas Lidstrom and host Glenn Healy at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
The hockey legends shared stories of their time in the NHL, as well as their personal connections to cancer.
"My mother-in-law had a 10-year-long fight with cancer so I'm very aware personally the message you get if you get a diagnosis of cancer," said Sundin, the former Toronto Maple Leafs captain.
"It's a battle for life usually."
Lidstrom's mother is also facing breast cancer.
"Cancer is a terrible disease so I'm doing whatever I can, my part, to help out," he said.
Healy, former Leafs goalie and NHL Alumni Association executive director, said he's fighting for former Leafs equipment manager Scotty McKay, who was diagnosed with myeloma in 2012 and treated at the Princess Margaret. He was also in attendance at the Nov. 16 event.
Domi, a long-time Toronto Maple Leafs enforcer, said cancer touches everyone, which is why it's important to support centres like the Princess Margaret.
"It's been (almost) 25 years since this place has been built," he said. "They saw 7,000 patients then, now they have 17,000 (new patients per year), so I think everything everybody is doing today is making a big difference."
