About Hockey Fights Cancer
In 1998, the National Hockey League began its "Hockey Fights Cancer" campaign in order to promote cancer awareness. Every October, each National Hockey League team holds various cancer awareness events during home games. These events raise funds, which are then donated to local and national cancer research facilities and organizations that support cancer patients and their families. One way National Hockey League teams promote the "Hockey Fights Cancer" campaign is by having each player wear a purple "Hockey Fights Cancer" decal on their hockey helmets, and a purple patch on their hockey jerseys. With a large inventory available on eBay, you can find official jersey patches worn by National Hockey League players throughout the month of October. Also available are official hockey pucks and "Hockey Fights Cancer" bracelets. The National Hockey League hopes that its popular campaign helps to promote awareness to the masses and provide important funding for organizations.
