Dennis Warmerdam, who was present as a reserve player for the Netherlands in the Hockey World Cup 2023, was told by doctors that he would never be able to play hockey again. He had pain in his right hand for more than 2 years. He underwent treatment and surgery from many doctors, but this only increased his suffering. After getting many tests done over 2 years, it was found that he had muscle cancer.
The doctors assured him that his disease was not life-threatening, but that the only cure was to have his hand amputated. Warmerdam consulted another doctor, who prescribed another surgery. However, the chances of this surgery being successful were just 1%. Warmerdam returned to the field for his club with the intention of playing hockey one last time before starting treatment for cancer.

Eventually, his surgery was successful. However, the doctors told him that he would not be able to play hockey again.
Upon regaining consciousness after surgery, Warmerdam moved his hand and flexed his wrist as if he were holding a hockey stick. After this, he tried to lift a glass, in which he was successful. Then Warmerdam filled the glass with water and tried to lift it again. He was successful in this also. He got to hope that he would be able to return to the hockey field again.
Warmerdam was able to hold a hockey stick 4 months after surgery. After 1 year he played his first match for his club. They also became part of the Olympic pool.
