Omaha Lancers Visit Methodist Hospital Ahead of Hockey Fights Cancer Night

Published: Oct. 17, 2023

Cancer patients at Methodist Hospital got a special visit on Monday afternoon. The Omaha Lancers hockey team toured the oncology and acute rehab units.

The team is preparing for its Hockey Fights Cancer game on Saturday, and the visit helped players learn about its impact. Saturday's game benefits Leap for a Cure, which seeks to advance brain cancer awareness, education, and diagnostic and treatment options.

“It definitely makes you take it to heart,” said Chase Cheslock, who plays defense for the team. “I mean, it's easy to just think Hockey Fights Cancer's just another theme night, but this really makes you take it in and makes you play for something a little bit more.”
