On December 8th 2016, Matt Young heard the horrible news.

"Why? Why me? How?" said Young.

He was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Immediately after that, his Antigo hockey teammates stepped up and showed that they cared.

"It's just a loving feeling. It's incredible support and love from the entire community," said Young.

On Saturday morning, it wasn't just the hockey guys that came together, but the whole town of Antigo.

"We had two of our hockey moms from the hockey team decide that they wanted to do something for Matt. They thought a floor hockey tournament would be fun because he's a hockey guy and we're a hockey family," said Mary Young, Matt's mom.
That hockey family is what keeps Matt going during his rounds of chemotherapy.
