image for Hockey fan who spotted Vancouver Canucks staffer's cancerous mole given $10,000 medical school scholarship

A woman who alerted a hockey staffer to a suspicious mole on his neck has been given a medical school scholarship to say thank you for saving for his life.

Nadia Popovici was in the stands behind the Vancouver Canuck's assistant equipment manager, Brian Hamilton, to watch their game against the Seattle Kraken back in October when she spotted the mole.

The hockey fan, who is preparing to study at medical school, alerted Mr Hamilton to the growth by writing a message on her phone and pressing it against the glass that separates supporters and team members.

As a result, he got a doctor to take a look at the mole, which was subsequently removed and found to be cancerous.
