The assistant equipment manager for the Vancouver Canucks took to social media on Saturday to find the Seattle Kraken fan he said saved his life by spotting a cancerous mole on the back of his neck.
Brian Hamilton, who was unaware of the mole, was going about his usual business during a National Hockey League game in Seattle on Oct. 23 when a woman sitting in a seat behind the visiting team bench kept trying to get his attention.
The persistent woman finally typed a message into her mobile photo and held it up for Hamilton, warning him, "The mole on the back of your neck is cancer."
After returning to Vancouver, Hamilton had the mole biopsied. It was diagnosed as a malignant melanoma.
"I am trying to find a very special person and I need the hockey community’s help," Hamilton wrote in a letter posted on the Canucks Twitter account. "To this woman I am trying to find, you changed my life, and now I want to find you to say THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH.
