5-Year-Old Fighting Brain Tumor Gifted Replica World Cup After Completing Radiotherapy
Soccer star Harry Kane vowed he and the English national team would play their best Saturday.
A 5-year-old soccer fan has been awarded his very own World Cup for his bravery through radiotherapy.
Ben Williams, a young boy from Birmingham, England, was dressed up in his soccer gear when he opened a wrapped gift to find a replica world cup — a present from doctors and nurses draped in English national team flags.
Even the machine in which he normally received his radiotherapy was decorated in the flags of the different countries competing for World Cup glory.
According to hospital staff, the surprise was all to honor Ben as he completed a round of radiotherapy to treat his brain tumor.
"He was unable to walk and talk before his treatment but a week ago he asked for the World Cup, so we delivered,” pediatric radiographer Liam Herbert wrote in a tweet that has gone viral.
Herbert even cheekily challenged the England national football team and team captain Harry Kane by tagging them in the tweet.
Just a day later, the young soccer fan’s idol responded, tweeting back: "Hi Ben, I've seen your video and you are an inspiration. Carry on fighting and we'll do everything we can on Saturday to keep a smile on your face!"
