Cristiano Ronaldo Donates Money To Help Seven-Year-Old Boy Receive Rare Cancer Treatment
Cristiano Ronaldo and partner Georgina Rodriguez have donated towards a seven-year-old's treatment for a rare form of cancer.
Portuguese youngster Tomas was diagnosed with neuroblastoma back in September 2019 and suffered a relapse last October.
His parents put out a message urging anyone who could to donate and help fund an important operation.
Georgina's sister, Ivana, shared a message to Instagram which seems to confirm their involvement in the incredible cause.

Guidelines currently state that donors should wait just four months to give blood after getting a tattoo.
Back on the pitch, Ronaldo celebrated his birthday weekend in style by scoring in Juventus' 2-0 win over Roma.
Following the game, he posted a message to Instagram reminiscing about his life so far.
"36 years old, unbelievable!" he begun. "It feels like it all started yesterday, but this journey is already full of adventures and stories to remember by. My first ball, my first team, my first goal... Time flies!
"From Madeira to Lisbon, from Lisbon to Manchester, from Manchester to Madrid, from Madrid to Turin, but above all, from the bottom of my heart to the world... I've given everything I could, I never held back and I've always tried to deliver the best possible version of me.
"In return, you gave me your love and admiration, your presence and your unconditional support. And for that, I'll never be able to thank you enough. I couldn't have done without you.
"As I celebrate my 36th birthday and my 20th year as a professional footballer, I'm sorry that I can't promise you 20 more years of this. But what I can promise you, is that as long as I keep going, you'll never receive less than 100% from me!
"Thank you once again for all your support and for your kind messages and initiatives during this day. It means a lot to me and you all have a special place in my heart."
