- Vince Dunn brought the Stanley Cup the hospital in Lindsay, Ontario, to meet Lawny, who has colon cancer and won’t leave the hospital until 2020.
- Bobcaygeon’s Lawny Woodcock, a self-proclaimed hockey fanatic, says he spent the evening of June 12 in his hospital bed watching Lindsay’s Vince Dunn raise the Stanley Cup in victory.
- A month later, he had tears in his eyes as Dunn made a surprise visit to Lindsay’s Ross Memorial Hospital to let Woodcock hold the Cup.
“It was pretty emotional,” Woodcock said, just after Dunn left his side. “To see a local boy win the cup… it was great to see.”
- Dunn also visited the Sick Kids Hospital and made time for all the children in his hometown to spend time with his friend, Stanley.
- Of course, Dunn made sure to start his morning with Breakfast of a Champion.
