Throughout the month of October, the New York Islanders are encouraging fans to stand up in the fight against cancer. Today, the New York Islanders would like to share a recent fan letter.

I writing about my dear friend from High School and fellow team mate for 25yrs Andre Janiak, who in the beginning of the summer was Diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon and Liver Cancer . Andre who was a long time Isles fan passed away just a week before the 2013-2014 season on September 25th. During his short battle with his illness he found strength while seeing small children fight the same disease. He told his family " I'm amazed on how strong and positive these little kids are and I can't complain " and how they were and inspiration to him. Andre was 39 married to his soul mate Sandra.

In memory to great brother #19 "DRE LOVER".....I'm going to miss u man, on and off the ice..

Enzo and the whole Nugget crew
