Tommy Fighting For His Life

I have posted a few articles about Tommy in the past, now Nhl.com has done a story about his battle.
Tommy Garrett was a 14-year-old goalie from the hockey-mad Ontario city of Peterborough when he was stricken three years ago with a virulent form of leukemia. His life has been extended by the important gift of bone marrow from a Windsor man he had never met. Now, Tommy is fighting for his life in Calgary because his body's immune system is attacking itself. And to the surprise of no one involved in the sport, the hockey world is rallying to his cause.
