Life always has a way of showing us, sports fans or not, what really truly matters, and Neal Livingston said it best — “Life is way more important than anything else. Not just how we live it, but how we tackle the odds against us. And human life always transcends entertainment, even in 2012 where the lines are blurred between the two.”

Today Ty Rimmer announced that he had surgery to remove a tumor after having been diagnosed with testicular cancer two weeks ago. Rimmer makes it clear that he is on his “way to a full recovery” and encourages “all young men to get themselves checked out.” As Neal wrote in 2012 when writing about Brandon Davidson’s diagnosis, “this form of cancer, although easily treated, typically strikes men in their early 20’s and 30’s. Often going under the radar, a monthly personal exam can lead to quick treatment and speedy recover.” Please, take Ty Rimmer’s words to heart, young men. Schedule an exam!

We wish you all the best, Ty Rimmer! We are looking forward to seeing you back on the ice very soon!
