SPOKANE – The Spokane Cyclones already dedicated their season to Terry Green after she was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. But over the weekend, they wanted to show her just how much they care.

“It’s a great group of kids,” Spokane Cyclones head coach Ron Hunter said. “They’ve supported each other on and off the ice all year and that extends to the families.”

On Saturday, every single player and coach showed up to the hockey game with pink-dyed hair in a unified statement of support for Terry. They wrapped their hockey sticks in pink tape and many wore bright pink laces in their skates. They also gave her a signed Cyclones jersey and a group hug.

“We just want her to know that we’re all here,” Terry’s son, Rhett Green, said.

“It’s very heartwarming,” Terry Green said.

The Spokane Cyclones have playoff games this weekend. Next week, Terry is scheduled to get a double masectomy.
