Doczy-fullCanadian Hockey League, Ontario Hockey League and Owen Sound Attack Alumni Milan Doczy (doh-chee) is fighting a battle that is much bigger than any fought on the ice. Milan was recently diagnosed with a form of Melanoma (skin cancer) which spread to his nodes. While an MRI has confirmed that the Cancer has not spread any further, Milan still requires very intense treatment to help combat this disease.

The Owen Sound Attack have developed the "Do it for Doczy" Campaign. The money raised will go directly to Milan to help cover the cost of his treatments and his living/travel expenses during this difficult time.

Milan's insurance does not cover the cost of this treatment/medicine, meaning this possible life saving treatment must be paid for out of pocket by Milan. This particular treatment is deemed necessary for him to fight this battle and to stop the Cancer from spreading. The side effects of this treatment are quite harsh, therefore; Milan will not be able to work and provide for himself during this time.

Milan arrived in Owen Sound in 2007 to play hockey for the Attack, spending three seasons in the Scenic City. Following his time in Owen Sound, Milan pursued an education at Brock University, where he currently studies and plays for their varsity hockey team, the Brock Badgers.

"Milan came to our Country and our City to play hockey and adopted our culture and way of life.", stated Brent Fisher, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for the Attack. "Milan needs everybody's help in the worst way right now, so we're hopeful that Attack fans, Brock University staff/students and the hockey community will support Milan in this fight."

Owen Sound Attack fans, Brock University students or people just wishing to help out will be able to purchase "Do it for Doczy" wristbands at the Attack Shack at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre (after Christmas) as well as Brock University in the New Year. If able, we also ask you to help out by donating at http://www.gofundme.com/doitfordoczy

Attack Alumni and former teammates of Milan's have come together to provide video's to promote the Do it for Doczy Campaign. Joey Hishon, Michael Halmo and Garrett Wilson have all provided Do it for Doczy videos that will be airing at Attack games, on www.attackhockey.com and the Attack Social Media avenues. We wish to thank the staff of the Lake Erie Monsters, Bridgeport Sound Tigers and San Antonio Rampage for assisting with this.

How You Can Help

Please help spread the word and message. Media, Social Media and word of mouth are such powerful tools.

"Do if for Doczy" Wristbands will be available at the Attack Shack and Attack Box Office at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre for $5.00. We are expecting these any day. As of right now, Brock University (in the new year) and the Attack Shack will be the only outlets.

We have also set up a Go Fund Me website for people wishing to support Milan's cause that may not be able to buy a Wristband. The link is here: http://www.gofundme.com/doitfordoczy

We're asking the people of Owen Sound, Brock University and the Hockey Community to "Band" together and Do if for Doczy.
