Dying Rangers Fan Needs Your Help!

Just saw this on Facebook and thought it would be good to share here...

Quote:
My dads dying from cancer. I need to get him to a rangers game asap, to meet the players. Please donate!

Im a 14 year old girl. My dad is loosing the fight to cancer. His biggest dream is to meet the rangers. All he wants to do is meet them, we need to meet, or surpass our goal for fundraising. With all the medical costs, we cannot afford the tickets to a Rangers game at MSG. My dad is on hospice, he has a feeding tube. My dad has been a rangers fan for 20+ years. Please donate to help get him to MSG and ultimatley meet the Rangers!

Sounds like a good cause, hopefully us Rangers fans can come together and help meet their goal.

Sent a message with the link to Lundqvist and Zuccarello's twitter accounts. Everything helps I guess.

That donation you gave was very generous, and the amount was a nice touch. Glad to see people coming together (especially Islander fans!) to help this family out!

I don't mean to sound insensitive, but has this story been vetted? I'm skeptical by nature.

I also wonder why she didn't just write a letter to the Rangers. Maybe they could arrange for both a meeting and a few free seats.

I vetted it. The lead organizer on the fundraising site is this girl Mari Atkinson, her facebook has photos of her dad on it like this one...

I posted this to my facebook. It would be great to get to the $1000 ASAP. After all, sports are just for fun and no matter who we root for; we are all in this world together, not to get all sappy.

They always tout it on MSG, but it seems mostly for the children, not for the parents.

Donated and put it up on Facebook. It looks like it could hit the target before it ends which would obviously be great.

Never understood the Asham hate. Honestly, one of my favorite Rangers.
