Forget your allegiances, forget “your team“… Brain Boyle of the New Jersey Devils legit should be everyone’s fucking hero.

New to the team this year, Boyle played his first game of the season last night in Vancouver, missing the first nine… And why did he miss these games? Why is this significant?

Boyle was diagnosed with leukemia just six weeks ago during training camp. He’s taking oral medication to fight the cancer. Oh, and all the while, he continues his professional hockey career!

THE GUY HAS CANCER AND HE’S PLAYING PROFESSIONAL FUCKING HOCKEY.

That’s the sort of shit we ALL need to rally around. Brian Boyle just slapping pucks and chucking knucks… And in his free time? Making cancer his bitch.

I hadn’t heard this story until today, but I this wasn’t a story I could ignore.

Brian Boyle, #11, you are my hero.

God bless and keep fightin’ the good fight!

 

 

Biiiiiiiiig Boyle Guy,
