It's funny how things come around. Case in point, 2018 Ellsworth High School graduate Ethan Kane who is representing Ellsworth in the 29th Annual Maine Lobster Bowl which will be played on July 21st.

According to the online article by  Shriner's Hospital for Children, Kane was a patient at the Boston Shriners Hospital. In February of 2018, as Ethan was taking his final welding certification, he sustained a third degree burn when a piece of scorching metal fell on his arm, burning through his protective equipment. Knowing the injury would need specialized burn care, emergency room doctors at Eastern Maine Medical Center quickly referred Ethan to Shriner's Hospitals for Children — Boston. Ethan’s father, Patrick, an Anah Shriner, never imagined he would need to bring his son for care to the hospital supported by the fraternity that he has been a part of for over 28 years.

Ethan is the son of Patrick and Katrina Kane. Ethan is planning on attending Eastern Maine Community College in 2018.
