(WJBK) - Legendary hockey star Paul Henderson had an enviable career that includes playing in two Stanley Cup finals, and scoring the winning goal for team Canada in the final game of the 1972 summit series against the Soviet Union.
These days, the 71-year-old Canadian is taking on a new challenge off the ice - battling a type of blood cancer called chronic lymphocytic leukemia, or CLL.
Rather than go with the conventional chemotherapy, he's gone in a different direction for his treatment. Henderson joined us on FOX 2 to share his story and raise awareness about CLL.
