I am writing to you to ask for your help as one of our own players and family is facing unexpected medical bills.

Recently Sam Heintz, who has played in the GLGHL for eight years, had surgery to remove a baseball size tumor from behind here eye. Fortunately Sam did not lose her eyesight and the tumor was benign. Unfortunately, Sam will need to undergo additional reconstructive surgeries and treatments because of the tumor.


I am writing to you to ask for your help as the family is facing unexpected medical bills that will exceed $10,000. The Buffalo Stars 19U team has set up a Go Fund Me which can be found using the link below. I am asking you to help Sam with this hardship by donating to the family on the go fund page. I know this is a hard time of year to find extra cash but even the smallest donation will help.   Please go to  to donate. 


I thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you have a great holiday season and a prosperous New Year.
