Hockey Fights Cancer Assist

REO TODESCA MEMORIAL FOUNDATION

In May of 2017, Reo Todesca (mother of Xaverian assistant coach Paul Todesca, Jr.) was diagnosed with stage 3b Non-Squamous Cell Lung Cancer. To honor her fight Paul and Xaverian Brothers High School partnered up with the Canton Ice House to host a Hockey Fights Cancer day in which both Canton High School and Xaverian would play back to back games and all proceeds would go to cancer research programs. The games were going to take place on 2/3/2018 with Reo in attendance, unfortunately, she was unable to make it and passed away on 12/28/2017. The games then became a memorial tribute to her and all others that have succumb to the awful disease.

 

In six years Hockey Fights Cancer has raised over $375,000 and established the Reo Todesca Memorial Foundation to honor Reo and keep her memory alive. The foundation also makes donations to help fund cancer research programs that will provide patients and families with prevention, screening, treatments and support so that more lives will be saved with the goal to “Conquer Cancer”.

 

2024 marks the 7th time the Canton Ice House will host Hockey Fights Cancer. Like last year the event will stretch over two days and will include some new members. Canton Youth Hockey, Canton HS Girls and Westwood HS Girls will be joining  Xaverian, Westwood HS Boys, Curry College Men and Women and Stoughton HS Girls as the participants this year.

 

Admission is $10 for Adults | $5 for Students. In addition, there will be a silent auction, chuck-a-puck, raffles, and much more. All proceeds from the night will be donated to The Reo Todesca Memorial Foundation.

How Fundraising Impacts Your Community

Cancer hits far too close to home, so the funds you raise will help do the same. Through services and resources like free rides to chemo, free places to stay near hospitals, and a live 24/7 helpline, cancer patients and their families will feel the love. Here’s how recent money raised has been put to incredible uses.

As of January 2022, we have invested $400 M for potentially lifesaving cancer research grants.

We have received over 250,000 calls and chats from patients and caregivers seeking support in 2021

Cancer patients benefited from ACS transportation support through our Road TO Recovery program and transportation grants in 2021, with nearly 229,000 rides provided.

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.  

Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
