Summer 2014: Bill Torrey Survived Stroke/Cancer

New York Islander Fan Central | 6/25/2015 06:33:00 AM | |
Mr Torrey just celebrated his 81st birthday, thankfully he's doing better than he was last summer, and still working with the Panthers.
Apparently he fainted playing golf with his son on Long Island, collapsed, and was diagnosed with a stroke.

He also had spots on his lungs/liver, did chemo, and is now cancer-free, and credited the Cleveland Clinic, and felt sick for several years prior.

“The doctors at Cleveland Clinic saw me through,” he said. “I’ve been fortunate.”

The article goes on to discuss his work with the Panthers, Dale Tallon, who praises him, the new ownership, and quotes Denis Potvin.
