Lindsay’s Vince Dunn brings Stanley Cup to cancer patient at Ross Memorial Hospital

KAWARTHA LAKES- Bobcaygeon’s Lawny Woodcock was admitted to Ross Memorial Hospital four months ago after being diagnosed with colon cancer.

His condition is improving – things are getting better every day, he says – but he recently learned he won’t be leaving the hospital until 2020 due to complications stemming from an infection.

Admittedly a Toronto Maple Leafs fan through and through, Lawny spends most of his time in his hospital bed watching hockey.

“Big (hockey fan),” he told stlouisblues.com. “I would watch hockey from the time I get up in the morning until I go to bed, seven days a week if I could.”

Because a majority of the St. Louis Blues’ players are Canadian-born, Lawny adopted the Blues as his team when the Maple Leafs’ season ended.
