New York Islanders Bring Cheer to Young Patients

Defenseman Johnny Boychuck signs autographs at the Cancer Center for Kids.

Young patients at Winthrop-University Hospital were all smiles this spring when four players from the New York Islanders – defenseman Johnny Boychuck, goaltender Jaroslav Halak, right winger Cal Clutterbuck and defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky – stopped by to give gifts, sign autographs, take photos and spread cheer throughout the pediatric unit and in the Hospital’s Cancer Center for Kids.

“This is one of our favorite events of the season,” said Mr. Clutterbuck. “Watching their faces light up when we came in and taking their mind off of what they are going through, even if for a few minutes, was well worth it.”

For their annual visit, the players first stopped by Winthrop’s Hagedorn Pediatric Inpatient Center and the Child Life playroom. Next on their list was the Cancer Center for Kids at Winthrop, where children undergoing treatment came to the lobby to take photos, choose presents and get their favorite player’s autograph.

“Each year our patients and their families are truly touched by the organization’s thoughtfulness and each player’s kindness and warmth,” said Nicole Almeida, Director of the Child Life Program at Winthrop. “We are both lucky and grateful to participate in this event.”

The New York Islanders brought smiles to the faces of young patients at Winthrop.
