TAMPA, Florida -- The Tampa Bay Lightning, the Lightning Foundation, and The Yerrid Foundation will host more than 2,000 cancer survivors and those impacted by the disease as the team takes on the New York Islanders on Thursday, March 14th.

Before the puck drops at the Tampa Bay Times Forum, cancer survivor and alumnus John Cullen will take the ice.

Through the years, more than 77,000 cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, families, doctors, nurses, and volunteers have participated in Tampa Bay Fights Cancer Night activities.

Fans can help show support and purchase yellow Yerrid Foundation tees while supplies last.
