Players & Skater of the Month

Skater of the Month


Congratulations to Melissa has been chosen as #TheRinks Anaheim ICE AUFEIS Hockey Skater of the Month! Melissa was born with a medical condition called congenital glucokinease hyperinsulinism. This extremely rare and difficult to manage condition doesn’t get her down. Even after multiple hospitalizations, surgeries and life threatening episodes, she is still a ray of sunshine and unstoppable! Melissa truly has an indomitable spirit. Melissa has been ice skating for 4 years now. The first time she competed she got off the ice and said, "That was fun! Can I go back out?" and has been participating in both ISI and USFS ever since. Figure skating is a very positive influence in her life. This month she received a service diabetic dog through Make A Wish. She was presented with Luna as Make A Wish's 6000th wish! Every day Melissa deals with her life threatening condition with a bright spirit and energetic positive attitude. Today, we honor her for never giving up and being a positive addition to The Rinks skating program! Congrats!
