Harry Kane sends heartwarming message to four-year-old Covid-19 survivor
According to ITV, Tottenham Hotspur superstar Harry Kane has sent a special video message to four-year-old cancer patient Archie Wilks after he recovered from coronavirus.
The youngster caught Covid-19 during treatment for rare childhood cancer neuroblastoma. Kane took to ITV‘s Good Morning Britain to tell Archie that he glad he is doing better.
“You’re a strong boy. Just keep listening to the doctors, nurses and your parents.”
Kane went on to reveal that he had heard the youngster loves to play football along with his twin brother Henry. He wished them the best and hopes they will continue to do so in the future (h/t ITV).
Archie, who was in his Tottenham shirt, was delighted by the surprise. He appeared alongside his parents, Simon and Harriet, and his twin brother Henry.
Following Kane’s surprise, the parents also thanked doctors and nurses who were on top of things and got their son back fit as soon as they could.
The battle continues – you too can help!
Donations have been pouring in to enable Archie to take part in a vaccine trial in the US which could reduce the chance of the cancer returning once he is in remission.
More than £186,000 has already been raised. You too can help a fellow Spurs fan by donating here.
