Help Eric Beat Hodgkin's Lymphoma

Former Burnsville Hockey Captain, Eric Otto's life was just beginning, and those lucky enough to know him, remember Eric as a kindhearted/selfless friend, ambitious player and a driven competitor on the ice. Eric graduated from Burnsville High in 2016 and was quickly drafted to the USHL Des Moines Buccaneers and then traded to the Chicago Steel. At the end of his second year in Juniors, Eric's work ethic and skill was recognized by one of the best D1 hockey programs in the NCAA and was signed by American International College. But before his freshman year had even begun, Eric became very sick.  At practice he found it difficult to breath, he was getting fevers, and was losing weight fast. Coaches knew something was very wrong... this was not the same kid they scouted.
    After an extensive medical evaluation, Eric was diagnosed with Stage IV Hodgkins Lymphoma. Over the next 6 months, he will be undergoing 12 rounds of ABVD chemotherapy. Eric is in the fight for his life and needs all the prayers and support he can get!

Donations would help greatly with medical, travel, and nutrition/meal expenses. Donate to help the Otto family and Eric with his fight against cancer.
