Quick blog article with some unfortunate news.

Justin played for the Lincoln Stars during the 2012-13 season.  This past year, he was a freshman on the University of Alaska-Fairbanks hockey team.

Click here to read more about Justin's illness , and how you can help.  I'll post a quote from the link below: 

On May 7, 2014, Justin Woods, Fairbanks Alaska's hometown hockey hero was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma. Ewing Sarcoma is a primary bone cancer that affects mainly children and adolescents. Justin was diagnosed early before it spread to other parts of his body, and has since moved down to Seattle with his mother Marsha where he will begin chemo treatments.

Justin has been playing hockey for as long as he can remember. He is a member of the University of Alaska Fairbanks Men's Hockey Team and was such an influential defensive player as he just wrapped up his freshman year with the Nanooks. Justin is a healthy young man who will fight this and come back so much stronger mentally, physically, and emotionally. His family, friends, and teammates are ready to help him fight for the goal and bring him back home!

Lets stand together and DO IT FOR JUSTIN. With the help from our communities and the complete healing from God, we know that this sweet young man will live a full and wonderful life. On behalf of the Woods family, thank you for everyone who is willing and able to make that possible.
Sending good vibes and prayers to Justin and his extended family.  For those of you out there in #StarsNation, please share this blog article or the link above with as many people as you can.  Just needs our support, so we need to pull together and do what we can to help.

Thank you.
