Pat Burns Continues To Fight

from Canada.com,

People cried and hugged in this Eastern Township Quebec town Wednesday during a groundbreaking ceremony for an arena named after Pat Burns, which reunited the former NHL coach with friends and former players.

“To my husband, Pat, thank you for being a living proof of courage, determination and hope, and this on a day-to-day basis,” Line Burns told those assembled at the future site of the $8.5-million arena.

Burns, weakened by his current battle with cancer, didn’t address the crowd, but reportedly did manage to make light of media reports that pronounced his premature death last month.
