HOCKEY FANS, HERE IS A CHANCE TO HELP ONE OF COLLEGE HOCKEY'S GOOD GUYS, AND BID ON SOME GREAT NCAA AND PRO HOCKEY GAME WORN JERSEYS AND MEMORABILIA. CHRIS GARNER, HOCKEY EQUIPMENT MANAGER AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA, DULUTH IS CURRENTLY BATTLING MDS (MYELODYSPLATIC SYNDROME), FORMERLY KNOWN AS PRE-LEUKEMIA. CHRIS WAS DIAGNOSED WITH THIS DISEASE EARLIER THIS YEAR AND RECIEVED A POTENTIALLY LIFE SAVING BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT AT THE END OF JULY. IF CHRIS DID NOT RECEIVE A BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT, THE RISK OF HIS CURRENT BONE MARROW TRANSITIONING INTO AML (ACUTE MYELOGENOUS LEUKEMIA) WOULD BE EXTREMELY HIGH. FORTUNATELY, A DONOR MATCH FOR CHRIS WAS FOUND IN JUNE OF 2010 AND CHRIS HAS BEGUN THE TRANSPLANT PROCESS AT THE MAYO CLINIC. THE BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT IS A VERY EXPENSIVE PROCEDURE AND CHRIS MUST BARE SOME OF THE MEDICAL COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH THE PROCEDURE ALONG WITH THE COSTS OF RELOCATING TO ROCHESTER, MN FOR THE TREATMENT UNTIL HE IS CLEARED TO RETURN TO WORK AT THE DECC (UMD'S HOME RINK) AND MOVE BACK HOME TO DULUTH.

JEREMIAH MINKEL,(jdminkel@stcloudstate.edu) ST CLOUD STATE HOCKEY EQUIPMENT MANAGER, MET CHRIS WHEN THEY WERE BOTH STUDENT ASSISTANTS AT SCSU AND THEY HAVE BEEN CLOSE FRIENDS EVER SINCE. JEREMIAH HAS PUT TOGETHER AN ON-LINE AUCTION THAT WILL BE STARTING OCTOBER 24th AT WWW.OBERMANAUCTION.COM TO RAISE FUNDS TO HELP OFFSET CHRIS'S MEDICAL COSTS NOT COVERED BY INSURANCE. TO DATE WE HAVE COLLECTED 82 COLLEGE AND PRO JERSEYS, OVER 20 AUTOGRAPHED STICKS AND MANY OTHER ITEMS THAT WERE GRACIOUSLY DONATED.

Awesome, Mr. Minkel, thanks for the tip on the auction, and best wishes to Chris.

Some other schmuck will probably get it though. Too many people know about this now!!! While that's obviously overall a good thing as it means more money will be made, it might mean I won't be able to get my AIC jersey. :p

Ah! The white Peoria Rivermen jersey is the Jim Jackson #3 jersey I was looking for this summer! And the NMU looks like a game worn Andrew Fernandez jersey.


What a great cause! Hope there is a HUGE response to this and that Chris can beat MDS. I may have to make sure I have room on the credit card....

48 teams college hockey teams represented on the list. Awesome.

Chris is doing well, he was at the UMD games this weekend, and anyone who knows anyone who has had a bone marrow transplant knows how HUGE it is for people to get back out in the world!

There were autograph sticks from Lecavalier, Stamkos, St.Louis, Malone, Gagne, Hedman, and Downie. Also recieved an autographed Alexandre Burrows Vancouver Canucks jersey. Auction starts Sunday at www.obermanauction.com

Why couldn't AIC donate a good jersey with a bee on it? That jersey blows! :(

You should get a UWS jersey and pretend it is an AIC jersey.

Dirty
10-22-2010, 09:39 AM
The bee is supposed to be the crest! Not on the shoulders! I am so disappointed. :(

Make them contribute a cool jersey! Like this one!

The UWS bee just isn't as cool. I want the AIC Bee!!!!

Is there a minimum bid or opening bid set for the jerseys? There are a few that I'll be watching to see if they get out of my price range.

http://board.uscho.com/images/icons/icon14.gif Awesome starting point. That means that pretty much everything should move, and the two week window will help too.

I'm really amazed at the huge turnout that you got for this. Great work for a great cause!
