BOSTON (CBS) – Quinn Waters, the 5-year-old better known as “The Mighty Quinn,” celebrated his latest round of aggressive cancer treatment coming to an end with a trip to see the Bruins at TD Garden. And he took home a souvenir thanks to a fellow Weymouth resident.
Waters, who is battling brain cancer for a second time, donned a purple Bruins jersey at the game, which is part of the NHL’s Hockey Fights Cancer initiative.READ MORE: Mikayla Miller Vigil In Hopkinton Expected To Draw Large Crowd
During warmups before the game, fellow Weymouth native Charlie Coyle tossed a puck into the stands where Quinn was sitting with his family.
The Mighty Quinn underwent treatment after he was first diagnosed with a brain tumor just after his third birthday in 2019.
