According to AS, Cristiano Ronaldo has offered to pay for a sick child’s surgery. The 10 month old Erik Ortiz Cruz was diagnosed with cortical dysplasia. The congenital brain abnormality can cause 30 seizures a day. Each test costs €6,000, and the needed operation is €60,000.
A friend of Cristiano’s asked the player to donate a signed shirt and boots for auction, which he didn’t hesitate to give. Manu Sainz reports that Ronaldo has also volunteered to take care of Erik’s hospital bill. This is just one of a few known cases of Cristiano’s generosity.
