Islanders host 'Kancer Jam' at Barclays Center

The New York Islanders held a special fundraiser after their game at the Barclays Center Saturday afternoon in an effort to raise money for cancer research.



The First Annual Anders Lee Kancer Jam features 32 teams competing in the popular Frisbee game "Kan Jam."



Lee's inspiration behind the event came from 16-year-old Fenov Pierre-Louis, who was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma when he was 9 years old.



"I want to be a spark for change and raise awareness for this horrific disease," Lee told News 12.



Organizers say they surpassed their fundraising goals, and will donate close to $100,000 toward pediatric cancer research.
