Westchester Warriors Maria Fareri Children's Hospital

Welcome to the 7th season of the Westchester Warriors Youth Ice Hockey Program!

Welcome to the 7th season of the Westchester Warriors Youth Ice Hockey Program! We are excited to announce that this year we will have our first-ever all girls team at the U14 level. They join our other teams, ranging from ’13 - at the youngest - to our ’04 team which includes three special players who helped start this charitable program back in 2015. Aside from providing a high quality, competitive ice hockey experience, we continue to seek hockey players who are prepared to “Play like Warriors.” Our goal is - and has always been - to use our love of hockey and the platform of youth sports to raise money in support of critically ill children in our community.

Your support, dedication, and commitment to our club and players for such a dear cause to all of us.  We are hoping together we can host our largest tournament to date.  

Our organization relies heavily on volunteers to ensure the teams and the organization run smoothly 

Westchester Warriors - What are we fighting for?

Westchester Warriors - What are we fighting for?

We are absolutely stunned at the hustle of the teams this year, already at $55,471.67 before anyone has touched the ice.


I wanted to share a bit about exactly what the teams are fundraising for.  These funds will support the Cellular and Tissue Engineering Laboratory at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital – a state-of-the-art medical laboratory specializing in tailored cellular, gene and regenerative therapy for our pediatric cancer and blood disorder patients.  


About Dr. Mitchel Cairo and the Cellular and Tissue Engineering Laboratory (CTEL):

·         CTEL is part of the Childhood and Adolescent Cancer and Blood Diseases Center at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital.

·         Cellular therapy for childhood cancer and blood disorders has become one of the most promising areas of medical research. The promise of unlocking treatments and cures to rare disorders by harnessing the power of the patient’s own body renews the efforts of Dr. Cairo’s team to lead advances that save lives while minimizing unwanted side effects.

·         CTEL consists of over 40 scientists who, paraphrasing Dr. Cairo’s words, “provide a la carte therapy, specialized for the patient that puts the patient first and leaves no stone unturned; promising the best long-term health of the patient.”

·         CTEL advances treat diseases such as:

o   Acute and chronic leukemias

o   Lymphomas

o   Brain tumors

o   Solid tumors (neuroblastoma, sarcomas, Wilms Tumor, hepatic and germ cell tumors)

o   Hemoglobinopathies (sickle cell disease and thalassemia)

o   Bone marrow failure syndromes (aplastic anemia and Fanconi anemia)

o   Immunodeficiencies (SCID and CGD)

o   Bleeding and clotting disorders (hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, idopathic thrombocytopenia etc.)

o   Lymphohistiocytic disorders


Video of Dr. Michael Gewitz speaking to Dr. Cairo’s work attracting patients who can find these treatments nowhere else.

I am happy to answer any questions you may have regarding CTEL and Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital.  Thank you all for everything you do!  GO WARRIORS!
