FORMER Real Madrid defender and Spanish youth team player, Leo Bermejo, is the latest celebrity to support the fight against cancer of his four-year-old namesake, Leo ‘the Lion’ Bermejo.
As well as sharing his name, young Leo loves football and his favourite team also happens to be Real Madrid.
Bermejo, the player, a tough left-back in the 90s, shared a tweet posted by the Euro Weekly News asking him to help the youngster in his fight against cancer.
The tweet said: “Could you RT (Retweet) to help a young football fan like yourself? His favourite team is Real Madrid!”
Leo is now in the UK waiting for his next operation which should take place on Wednesday.
After that and once he’s recovered sufficiently, he will jet off to the USA for the proton therapy that will give him the best chance of defeating his rare cancer. And that’s where you the reader come in. Below is Leo’s bank account details. Any donation, big or small, will make a huge difference.
