The St. Pat’s boys high school hockey team challenged the St. Pat’s teachers to a charity hockey game in honour of Taylor Scott – a grade 10 St. Pat’s student battling cancer.

The game was held at the Clearwater arena on February 19 and with the support of the St. Pat’s student community and the Sarnia community at large, a total of $5,500 was raised.

At the request of Taylor and her family the funds were donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities – an organization that Taylor and her family have relied upon significantly since her cancer diagnosis last November.

A formal cheque presentation for $5,500 was made last week at St. Pat’s by Taylor to a representative from the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Taylor has had the cancerous tumour removed from the bone in her right leg during a lengthy operation performed in Toronto in late February.

Taylor is presently undergoing frequent and intense chemotherapy treatments in London, Ontario. While Taylor will not be able to return to school until next fall her prognosis for a full and healthy recovery is excellent.

If members of the Sarnia community remain interested in donating to the Ronald McDonald House charity in Taylor’s honour, St. Patrick’s High School continues to receive donations on behalf of Taylor and is forwarding them on to the Ronald McDonald House charity on her behalf.

For further details please feel free to contact St. Patrick’s Catholic High School at (519) 332-3976.
