The Juventus star and his partner, Georgina, have reached out to help a young boy receive a rare cancer treatment.

Cristiano Ronaldo and his partner, Georgina Rodriguez, have donated an undisclosed amount of money to help a seven-year-old boy receive treatment for a rare form of cancer.

Tomas, a seven-year-old boy from Portugal, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma – a cancer that spreads from immature nerve cells – in September 2019. He suffered a relapse last October from the illness.

The boy’s parents made a public appeal to raise money for an important operation, which Ronaldo and Georgina duly obliged.

Georgina’s sister, Ivana, has now shared a message on her Instagram account confirming the couple’s involvement with a touching message from the parents.

“Thank you Georgina and Cristiano for your help, solidarity and great heart,” read the message. “Infinite thanks for helping us so that Tomas can access treatment.”

Tomas has checked into the D’Hebron Hospital in Barcelona for tests and consultations.
