Lightning to help cancer foundation

The second annual Tampa Bay Fights Cancer Week culminates Saturday at the Ice Palace.

More than 5,000 cancer patients, their families, doctors, nurses and volunteers will receive free tickets, T-shirts and food vouchers for the 5 p.m. game against Carolina.

Local attorney Steve Yerrid's Yerrid Foundation, which is purchasing the tickets, has pledged $100,000 to cancer research if the remaining 2,500-3,000 tickets to the game are sold.

In addition, Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos, who lost his wife, Barbara Ann, to breast cancer, has pledged $2 for every ticket sold between now and Saturday, up to $5,000.
