Update on Providence's Drew Brown and How to Help

PC Athletics Media Relations

The family of Providence hockey player Drew Brown, who was recently diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, has provided a bit more information on Drew's situation, and has started a fund for those that wish to provide support.

The good news is that the family's update confirms that Brown's cancer is isolated in his leg, and that multiple scans have shown no other tumors in his organs. Brown is currently undergoing chemotherapy, which is by no means an easy task, and will miss next hockey season. But with the cancer isolated in his leg without spreading to other organs, his chances of surviving the cancer are greatly increased.

For those wishing to offer their help, the Brown family is looking for help in covering the costs of insurance deductibles, medical equipment, and the other associated costs that come when a family member spends the better part of a year in the hospital. Once again, here's the link to where you can donate.
