Ottawa youth thank Senators GM Bryan Murray in touching video

Bryan Murray wanted to use his battle with cancer to promote conversation about getting checked for colon cancer. Watch as Ottawa youth thank Murray and encourage him during his battle.

When Bryan Murray came forward with his cancer diagnosis, he had one singular message: do not be afraid to get checked. Your health is worth it.

The Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation released a video this past week of several Ottawa youth hockey players taking part in a skate and talking about their experiences with the disease. The touching video has the kids telling Murray to keep fighting while others talk about how he has already made a positive impact in cancer awareness:

Murray revealed his battle with cancer on Nov. 13 in a very emotional piece on TSN. Since revealing his diagnosis, Murray has been a very vocal supporter of getting regular prostate exams.

I think we all echo the sentiments of these young men. Thank you, Mr. Murray.
