Bryan Bickell brings message of perseverance at Mount Prospect school
Former Chicago Blackhawks player Bryan Bickell talked to students in Mount Prospect Friday about challenges he's faced -- including his battle with multiple sclerosis -- and how he's been able to persevere.
Bickell, part of the Blackhawks Stanley Cup championship teams in 2013 and 2015, was joined by his wife Amanda at an assembly at Fairview Elementary School. Students there have been collecting money for the Bryan & Amanda Bickell Foundation, which encourages adoption of pit bulls.
Bickell played 11 years professionally until he retired last year after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
