Tiya's Special Interview with the Hockey News
Submitted By Rob MacDonald on Saturday, February 13, 2021
Tiya Bainbridge's world changed last summer when she was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. But not only is she back on the ice, she's making a difference for families going through the same thing.

Just before she began chemotherapy treatments last summer, an 11-year-old girl by the name of Tiya Bainbridge met an 18-year-old boy by the name of Owen Brady. The two of them were indelibly linked, and not just because of their mutual love for hockey. During that meeting, Tiya asked for one favor, that Owen skate with her on her backyard rink when she completed her treatment.

So on Jan. 29, two days after Tiya Bainbridge ‘rang the bell’ at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto to commemorate her cancer-free diagnosis, Tiya Bainbridge kept her date with Owen Brady. On a brisk day on a backyard rink in Whitby, Ont., two cancer survivors tied up their skates, picked up their sticks and enjoyed something almost all of their peers take for granted. “It was so exciting,” Tiya said. “It was one of the best days of my life.”
