BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Buffalo Sabres have teamed up with Roswell Park Cancer Center to offer a limited-edition New Era cap, designed with the creative direction of Roswell's patients and staff.

The blue two tone cap has the word "hope" and a symbolic ribbon stitched onto its side. The front of the cap shows the Sabres' logo, encompassed by the words "Roswell Park" and "Buffalo Sabres."

The "Official Cap of Hope" will be available for purchase for $25 at the Sabres Store inside KeyBank Center and at Buffalo-area Wegmans. Five dollars of the purchase price will go towards supporting cancer research at Roswell.

The hat’s designers include patients Emmett Jakubowski and Kathleen Theal, and Assistant Professor of Oncology Adam Sumlin.

On Tuesday, Sabretooth will be visiting Roswell to deliver caps to patients.
