The New York Islanders regret to announce the passing of one of our most loyal fans. Isabella (Bella) Pine, 8, lost her battle with Leukemia on Wednesday, Oct. 31.

Isabella was diagnosed with the disease last Friday, Oct. 26, and despite the short battle, fought hard. A huge Islanders fan, her favorite player was forward Matt Moulson, and she attended many team events and player signings.

The Islanders ask fans to keep Isabella’s family in their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Throughout Hockey Fights Cancer Month, the Islanders are recognizing people who have overcome giant obstacles and survived this terrible disease. Five of these special survivors are members of the Survivors Facing Forward Program at Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York, located in Great Neck, NY. Today, let’s meet Crystal…

Crystal, Hodgkin's Lymphoma Survivor
Diagnosed at age 16

At age 16 I was diagnosed with cancer and began chemotherapy at Cohen Children’s Medical Center (CCMC). I missed most of my junior year of high school and was not able to participate in sports. However, I knew cancer would not stop me from achieving what I wanted to do in life.

At age 30 I am a patient of the Survivors Facing Forward program at CCMC and am proud to be working at North Shore University Hospital as a Physician’s Assistant in the Department of Surgery.


As a leading center of pediatric oncology, the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York sees approximately 200 new cases of childhood cancer every year. This results in hundreds of childhood cancer survivors requiring ongoing care. Survivors Facing Forward is a program designed to meet the complex needs of these survivors, as well as others from the New York area. The program crosses disciplines, providing coordinated access to oncology, endocrinology, pulmonology, cardiology, psychology, nutrition and other specialists as needed. For more information, CLICK HERE.

If you have a story you’d like to share from a friend, family member, co-worker or yourself, please feel free to send it our way, along with some pictures, at nyisocialmedia@gmail.com.

Cancer doesn’t take a day off and neither will the Islanders organization as we join the fight to find a cure for cancer. If you’d like to team up with the Islanders fight and help more patients survive like Crystal, you can MAKE A DONATION HERE.

This year, the Islanders Fight Cancer initiative and the numerous children, facilities and awareness organizations who benefit from our annual fundraising events, may lose a major source of donations that they normally count on to help meet annual budgets and support their needs because of the current NHL work stoppage. The Islanders organization is still committed to supporting these great charities and important people though. The team is asking fans of the orange & blue to take up this cause online, in their community and wherever else they see fit. Whether it be in your own households, schools or workplaces, we hope you’ll help Long Island’s team give back and support those who need us the most right now.

If you’d like to make a donation to the Islanders Children’s Foundation, which will then be filtered to local cancer hospitals, research facilities and awareness organizations, please CLICK HERE. We’d like you to know a little more about the organizations you’re supporting with these donations, so NewYorkIslanders.com will feature profiles on them throughout Hockey Fights Cancer Month.

Today, we take a look at four very special organizations that the Islanders are proud to partner with and support: the Honeysuckle Foundation, the I’m Too Young for This! Cancer Foundation, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Children’s Tumor Foundation.

Honeysuckle Foundation

The Honeysuckle Foundation For Children with Cancer, a not-for-profit corporation, was formed in 2002 by Rene Giacalone and a friend Michael A. Borg, Esq., while her youngest daughter was battling bone cancer. Through the kindness and concern of family, friends and neighbors, it became evident early on during treatment that the family's "support network" was just as important as her daughter's medical treatment. With other siblings to be concerned about as well as an extensive network of friends, neighbors, and schoolmates, striking a balance of maintaining a healthy outlook while undergoing grueling medical treatment was a continual challenge. This family was able to get through a year that was physically and emotionally demanding, while still enjoying a high quality of life - a luxury many healthy families, let alone cancer families, find difficult to achieve.

From this experience was born the idea of establishing the Honeysuckle Foundation to assist cancer families in their time of need.

The I’m Too Young for This! Cancer Foundation-Stupid Cancer

The I'm Too Young For This! Cancer Foundation is the nation's largest support community for young adults affected by cancer (15-40) and serves as a bullhorn for the young adult cancer movement.

Make-A-Wish Foundation

Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. The Foundation's mission reflects the life-changing impact that a Make-A-Wish® experience has on children, families, referral sources, donors, sponsors and entire communities.

Children’s Tumor Foundation

The Children's Tumor Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) medical foundation, dedicated to improving the health and well being of individuals and families affected by the neurofibromatoses (NF).

Five of these special survivors are members of the Survivors Facing Forward Program at Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York, located in Great Neck, NY. Today, let’s meet Tracy…

Tracy, Hodgkin Lymphoma and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Survivor
Diagnosed at age 16

At age 16 I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Disease Stage 3A and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Stage 1A. I had two different types of cancer at once, and my sister had just finished treatment for Hodgkin’s disease seven months prior. I had numerous surgeries, a medi-port put in (the best gift my parents ever gave me) and a year of chemotherapy and radiation. Treatment was probably the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life. There were many bumps in the road during treatment, but my family, friends and doctors helped me be positive and fight hard while I was at Cohen Children’s Medical Center (CCMC), my home away from home.

At age 39 I’m a Special Education Teacher. Every year I visit my Survivorship Doctor at CCMC, who makes sure I am proactive about my health. There have been some scares along the way, but I try to do everything I can to keep myself healthy. Surviving cancer is such a gift. I am so grateful for everyone who has helped me survive. As a result, I started my own foundation Friends and Angels: The Tracy Vicere Foundation to benefit the Division of Hematology/Oncology and Stem Cell Transplantation at CCMC.

Today, we take a look at five very special organizations that the Islanders are proud to partner with and support: Cancer Care, the Don Monti Memorial Foundation, the National Brain Tumor Society, the Icla da Silva Foundation and Movember.

Cancer Care

CancerCare was founded in 1944 in New York City with the mission of helping advanced cancer patients. The lamp was chosen as the symbol for the organization because its light represented warmth, comfort and hope.

From the very beginning, CancerCare provided financial assistance for home care, as well as counseling by professional oncology social workers. By 1980, CancerCare was helping more than 25,000 people with its free counseling services, which to this day are the heart of the organization’s work.

For more information, please visit www.cancercare.org

Don Monti Memorial Research Foundation

The Don Monti Memorial Research Foundation is committed to the ultimate goal of eradicating cancer through the research programs it supports. The organization also recognizes that cancer has a very human face. As a result, 40% of the Foundation’s budget is dedicated to patient care at six Don Monti Cancer Centers, as well as at the Don Monti Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant Unit at North Shore University Hospital.

For more information, please visit donmontifoundation.org

National Brain Tumor Society

The National Brain Tumor Society is fiercely committed to finding better treatments, and ultimately a cure, for people living with a brain tumor today and anyone who will be diagnosed tomorrow. This means effecting change in the system at all levels.

For more information, please visit www.braintumor.org

Icla da Silva

The Icla da Silva Foundation is the largest recruitment center for the Be The Match Registry in the United States. It recruits over 38,000 new potential bone marrow donors every year, with a strong focus on minority communities.

For more information, please visit www.icla.org

Movember

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.

For more information, please visit us.movember.com. If you’d like to join the Islanders Movember team this year and help us raise funds to fight prostate cancer, click here to sign up!

Five of these special survivors are members of the Survivors Facing Forward Program at Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York, located in Great Neck, NY. Today, let’s meet Luke…

Luke, Rhabdomyosarcoma Survivor
Diagnosed at age 19 months

At 19 months old I was diagnosed with Rhabdomysosarcoma and I spent nearly a year at Cohen Children’s Medical Center (CCMC), including Christmas. My parents tell me that we didn’t “miss Christmas” at all – Santa came to visit me Christmas morning and gave me a toy truck and the social work staff cleared out a conference room for us to have Christmas dinner with our family. My grandparents, aunts and uncles all showed up with food and we had a great holiday feast!

At age 12 I am a patient in the Survivors Facing Forward program at CCMC and I am attending middle school in Massapequa. I am excelling in my classes and involved in karate, baseball, golf and basketball. I was a finalist in my district’s science fair the past two years in a row, and I’m excited to be a part of the Science Olympiad team this year! Strange as it may seem, our family looks back at our time at CCMC with fondness, not despair. We have come to actually miss the environment and people that have moved on to welcome other families into their home.

Today, we take a look at six very special organizations that the Islanders are proud to partner with and support: the Susan G. Komen Foundation, the 1 in 9 Hewlett House, We’re Fighting Back, the Lean on Me Breast Cancer Network, Three Strohm Sisters and the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition.

Susan G. Komen Foundation

Susan G. Komen fought breast cancer with her heart, body and soul. Throughout her diagnosis, treatments, and endless days in the hospital, she spent her time thinking of ways to make life better for other women battling breast cancer instead of worrying about her own situation. That concern for others continued even as Susan neared the end of her fight. Moved by Susan’s compassion for others and committed to making a difference, Nancy G. Brinker promised her sister that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever.

That promise is now Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the global leader of the breast cancer movement, having invested more than $1.9 billion since inception in 1982. As the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists, we’re working together to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® and the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure®, and generous contributions from our partners, sponsors and fellow supporters, we have become the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.

To learn more, please visit http://ww5.komen.org/.

1 in 9 Hewlett House

1 in 9: The Long Island Breast Cancer Action Coalition is a grassroots advocacy organization of dedicated volunteers who are working to keep the concerns about the breast cancer epidemic in the forefront. The organization is committed to promoting action towards finding causes and cures, with the eradication of breast cancer as the ultimate mission.

It is the mission of this organization to promote awareness of the breast cancer epidemic through education, outreach, advocacy, and direct support of research, which is being done to find the causes of and cures for breast cancer and other related cancers. Since a high majority of breast cancer incidences fall outside the known risk categories, they are unique in looking at environmental factors as possible causes and in seeking and promoting ways to keep the environment healthy.

To learn more, please visit www.1in9.org.

We’re Fighting Back

We're Fighting Back, Inc. is a charitable organization dedicated to the pursuit of education, awareness, treatment and an ultimate cure for breast cancer. All funds raised are donated to the American Cancer Society's Strides Against Breast Cancer.

To learn more, please visit www.werefightingback.com.

Lean on Me Breast Cancer Network

Lean On Me Breast Cancer Network Inc. was initially established as a New York State non-profit organization in May 2000 by Dr. Dwight DeRisi, Donna DeRisi, Sharon Pape, Ursula Thall and Gerry Accardo. Its goal was to provide one on one peer support for women who had been diagnosed with breast cancer by pairing them with volunteer survivors from a physician's practice. To date, the Lean On Me peer support program has trained over eighty volunteers and has helped thousands of patients.

To learn more, please visit www.leanonmebcn.com.

Three Strohm Sisters

The Three Strohm Sisters Family Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 1999 by three sisters, Lucille Montrony, Jane Stanczuk and Kathy Sarna, who were all inflicted with breast cancer. As cancer survivors they found strength in organizing a foundation to support those battling this dreadful disease by sponsoring events that will raise money for cancer research.

To learn more, please visit www.threestrohmsisters.org.

National Ovarian Cancer Coalition

The mission of the NOCC is to raise awareness and promote education about ovarian cancer. The Coalition is committed to improving the survival rate and quality of life for women with ovarian cancer.

Today, let’s meet Thomas…

Thomas, Heptoblastoma Survivor
Diagnosed at age 3 months

At 3 months old my parents discovered an abnormal mass on the right side of my stomach. I was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma and I began six rounds of chemotherapy that weakened my immune system. As a result I had numerous trips to the emergency room and was readmitted to Cohen Children’s Medical Center (CCMC). My parents tell me that through it all I was a happy and smiley baby.

At age 5 I’m a proud big brother to my sister Claire and I’m looking forward to having a new sibling to play with come December! I’m five years off treatment and a patient of the Survivors Facing Forward program at CCMC. While I have mild to medium hearing loss due to the chemotherapy, I have cool blue hearing aids that match the color of my favorite baseball team – the Mets!

Five of these special survivors are members of the Survivors Facing Forward Program at Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York, located in Great Neck, NY. Today, let’s meet Kirsten…

Kirsten, Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia Survivor
Diagnosed at age 7

At age 7 I was diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML). Shortly after my body rejected my first bone marrow transplant, I relapsed and was diagnosed with CML, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. My parents learned of a new technology called preimplantation genetic diagnosis which could help them have another child that would be a perfect match for my bone marrow. My twin brothers beside me ultimately saved my life.

At age 16 I am six years off treatment and a patient of the Survivors Facing Forward program at Cohen Children’s Medical Center. I recently had a huge party to celebrate my 16th birthday! I am currently a junior at Kellenberg Memorial High School where I have maintained a 96 average while also playing for the softball team. After graduation, I intend to go to college and eventually work towards my goal of becoming a pediatric oncologist.

People who make a donation can have their name featured on the Hockey Fights Cancer wall at Nassau Coliseum
As the calendar turns to October, the New York Islanders are proud to support hockey’s fight against cancer. The organization is bringing awareness to local cancer patients, non-profits and hospitals, while helping raise funds to battle this terrible disease.

The Islanders Fight Cancer initiative, in its 14th season, stands as one of the cornerstones of the team’s official charity, the Islanders Children’s Foundation (ICF). Every year, a variety of special fundraisers are held at Nassau Coliseum, during games and on-line. These efforts will continue even with the current absence of the NHL season.

However, the Islanders Fight Cancer initiative and the numerous children, facilities and awareness organizations who benefit from these fundraising events, may lose a major source of donations that they normally count on to help meet annual budgets and support their needs. The Islanders organization is asking fans of the orange & blue to take up this cause online and in their community. Whether it be in your own households, schools or workplaces, we hope you’ll help Long Island’s team give back and support those who need us the most right now.

If you’d like to make a donation to the Islanders Children’s Foundation, which will then be filtered to local cancer hospitals, research facilities and awareness organizations, please CLICK HERE.

Throughout October, NewYorkIslanders.com will be posting inspirational survivor stories from our very own backyard.
