On November 30th I got the chance to be a part of a huge night for a wonderful girl. Sara O’Neill is 14 years old and was diagnosed in April 2012 with an inoperable brain tumour (Brainstem Glioma). She has gone through and finished treatment to help slow down the growth but it had unfortunately failed. Every day for her counts right now, and among one of the things she has on her bucket list is the wish to see a London Knights hockey game.
I was asked by her aunt, Denise if I was available to help out by bringing my camera and getting some shots of the night to remember. Of course I said yes, as I love helping out where possible with friends and family, and I know how important this is to all of them! It was officially called “Sara’s Big ‘Knight’ Out”. It couldn’t have been better with the London Knights winning their game against the Barrie Colts 5-3, thus making it their 13th win in a row this season!
A HUGE thank you goes out to everyone involved in making the night happen!
