Hunter Murphy


It was a social day as I was blessed to spend it with one of the toughest kids I know! Hunter Murphy is a huge Avs fan and also one heck of a hockey player! Some of you may also recognize Hunter as the kidcaster from the December 17th Avs/Sharks game as he dazzled the AltitudeTV audience with his hockey knowledge and natural delivery. Just four and a half months after that epic night, Hunter and his family received the devastating news that he had been diagnosed with bone cancer in his right leg. Now in the midst of an aggressive chemo regiment and facing a life changing surgery later this month, Hunter continues to have a positive attitude and looks at life with a contagious “can do” outlook. 

Special thanks to the Colorado Avalanche as we took in the prospect camp at Family Sports and ended the session with some of my favorite players as Sean Behrens, Matt Davis and Marek Hejduk all took time to hang out with Hunter. Sean even sweetened the deal by giving my little pal a signed stick! 

Here’s to you Hunter, you’ve got this!!
