Cristiano had a boy, who’s sick with a very difficult kind of cancer watch his game from the VIP box yesterday night. His first goal-dedication with the thumbs-up was for the young man whose biggest idol is Cristiano.
Cristiano heard his story and sent him a signed photo to his house. Later he called him personally to tell him that he was going to watch the game “Real Madrid vs. Celta” live from the stands of the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu. He animated him to continue his battle against cancer and he told him that he’s strong and that things will be fine.
Here’s what the boy said after the game: "It was a dream come true for me and the truth is, I’m endlessly thankful for what he has done. It’s something very emotional for me, because I never thought it would happen to me. I was in the VIP box with all his family, and with his son who’s a very intelligent little boy, very friendly and polite and very handsome as well. It was incredible."
The boy’s mother, who was with him at the game, couldn’t help but become emotional: "I am thankful to Cristiano beyond words for what he has done for my son. He’s such a special person. He’s truly an angel. And my family and I will never, NEVER, forget what he’s done. People can say what they want, but he’s a true angel. Thank you for everything, Cristiano."
Yet Cristiano never mentioned what he did on his social networking sites or in front of the press. Because he did it to actually make this boy happy, not to brag about it later. If “LaSexta” wouldn’t have talked to the boy, we would have never found out about this. Ans this makes me respect him even more. He’s not a bad person, the opposite…he helps many people. The difference is that he doesn’t run around telling everyone about it. GRANDE CRISTIANO!
