Kerry Fraser: Facing Off Against Blood Cancer

Podcast

In this episode of CURE Talks Cancer, we talk with retired NHL referee Kerry Fraser about his MPN diagnosis, his advocacy work, and how he uses the lessons he learned on the ice and works with his winning team to conquer each day.

When he retired in 2010 after 30 years as a referee for the National Hockey League, Kerry Fraser looked forward to hanging up his skates and spending some well-earned time with his family. But seven years later, he was body checked by something he didn’t expect: a diagnosis of essential thrombocythemia, a rare blood cancer.

In this episode of CURE Talks Cancer, we talk with Kerry about his diagnosis, his advocacy work, and how he uses the lessons he learned on the ice and works with his winning team to conquer each day.
