Please join Sally O’Briens and the MaxPro Hockey Club for a benefit honoring Tyler Gates, on Saturday, February 29th from 2:00pm-4:00pm at 355 Somerville Avenue, Somerville, MA 02143.

There is a GoFundMe page dedicated to raising $100,000 for Tyler’s medical and other expenses, which you can donate to by clicking here or by using the button above.

Tyler has been a goalie with MaxPro Hockey Club for years. Tyler’s improvement from last season to this season has made him a key part of the MaxPro Jets U14 Elite team. It’s a result of a lot of  hard work, dedication, and consistent, effective training.

Now, coming up on his fourteenth birthday, Tyler mentioned hip pains to his dad, which are not uncommon for goalies. Doctors could not find anything wrong. Then, Tyler complained of stomach pains, which resulted in his doctor checking his blood. The next day, the Gates family learned of Tyler’s Leukemia.

Tyler is receiving treatment, and is responding very well. So far, he has had a few rounds of chemotherapy, and is home now after a couple weeks in the hospital. Now, Tyler needs our help. Let’s expand Tyler’s team beyond his family to include his hockey club, friends, and the community around him! All proceeds will help the Gates family with associated expenses.
