In October 2020 the parents of the child Tomas da Costa Vilaa, 7 anni, they learned that the neuroblastoma the child had been diagnosed with a year earlier had returned and that the malignant tumor was in such an aggressive form that the treatment he had undergone in Portugal had proved ineffective and therefore further treatments were needed, to be done in Barcelona and in the United States. Treatments that the family could not afford, which prompted friends and relatives of the da Costa Vilaa to launch the campaign on Facebook and Instagram For Tomas’ Dreams (For Tomas’s dreams), in order to raise the money necessary for the baby’s care. And among those who have received the appeal of Tomas’s parents there are also Cristiano Ronaldo and his partner Georgina Rodriguez that, at least according to the story published on Instagram by the latter’s sister, Ivana, would have given a generous contribution to the cause of the unfortunate Portuguese child.
In fact, the message in question reads thanks to the various people of great humanity for their generosity in times of need, with a final comment dedicated to Georgina and Cristiano for your help, your solidarity and your big heart. Thank you so much for helping us so that Tomas can get the treatment. As we still read in the post, the child now hospitalized at Vall d’Hebron University Hospital in Barcelona for a series of oncology tests and consultations, before starting treatment for neuroblastoma.
World Ambassador of Save the Children, Unicef and World Vision, CR7 is not new to gestures of generosity towards others: in fact, in 2011 he decided to give away the money earned from the Golden Boot auction won for the 40 goals scored with Real (1.4 million euros) to build schools in Gaza; two years later he donated the € 100,000 bonus earned by UEFA for the Team of the Year to the Red Cross, while last March he and his agent, Jorge Mendes, allocated just over a million euros to hospitals in Portugal engaged in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
