NHL players celebrate with young fan who beat cancer

A family from Pennsylvania is happy to hear that their son’s battle with cancer is over. His parents thank their ice stars, the Pittsburgh Penguins, who took part in the celebration of their family’s victory over cancer. See the whole story in the video above. Before the Penguins fight on Sunday, Bryson Phenicie of Oil City, Pennsylvania, and his father camped right along the boards near the players’ tunnel. “He had to watch a warm-up there and he was jumping up and down all excited,” said Bryson’s father, Eric Fenisi. Bryson proudly carried a sign saying he had no cancer and asked players to celebrate with him. First, a Penguins trainer threw an elf at Bryson. “As the players came out of the ice, Casey DeSmith stopped and took the picture with him and then Brian Boyle stopped and said hello, Brian Boyle got up and threw one at him,” said Eric Phenicie. A cancer survivor himself, Boyle punched Bryson in the glass, leading more Penguins to celebrate Bryson’s victory. “As the players came out of Brian Rust and some others were knocking on the glass and when they made the three stars, everyone looked at him and somehow recognized him and then when Jenno came out, he stuck the stick after he saw him sign it and as soon as he did that, “He grabbed it and did not want to leave it at all,” said Eric Fennis. Bryson underwent four rounds of chemotherapy to fight a large lump in his chest. It will be a lifelong memory for Bryson’s parents, watching him celebrate his survival and watching the penguins cheer him on. “Although it was a terrific experience, so many wonderful things have happened from it, as this is a great example, miracles still happen and that is definitely a miracle,” said Bryson’s mother, Sarah Phenicie.
