Terrible news to pass along today. Canada's ultimate hockey hero Paul Henderson has announced he's battling cancer.
Henderson was diagnosed with lymphocytic lymphoma chronic leukemia in November 2009, he told CBC's Connect With Mark Kelley. Apparently this form of leukemia is the most commonly found leukemia in adults in the western world.
Henderson, 67, said early treatments have had no effect. He is vowing to fight on, and is aided greatly by his faith in God.
Henderson of course is best known for scoring the dramatic last second goal against the Russians in the 1972 Summit Series.
