A Boston Bruins superfan who is battling cancer was surprised with Stanley Cup Final tickets at a Dunkin’ in Stoughton on Friday.
Shannon McCarthy, of Stoughton, was brought to tears when she was greeted at the front door by a Dunkin’ mascot bearing B’s tickets to Game 1 at the TD Garden.
“This is overwhelming,” she said. “This is a crazy, crazy day.”
McCarthy made headlines when she decided to postpone her upcoming surgery until after the Stanley Cup Finals are over.
“I have a huge surgery but I told my surgeon that I had to postpone anything until the Cup is over,” she said. “I had to. It’s just the way it goes.”
McCarthy said she has one other Bruins dream — she wants to wave the Bruins flag before a game.
