This is a feel good story and one that reflects very well on Spurs and England striker Harry Kane. Genuinely nice move by him to tweet this young fella.
The initial tweet was from Specialist Paediatric Radiographer Liam Herbert at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital. They always do something special for the kiddies when they have finished their course of treatment. Little Ben asked for the World Cup and that’s what he got.
Ben has just completed his #radiotherapy for a #braintumour, he was unable to walk and talk before his treatment but a week ago he asked for the World Cup, so we delivered. @England and @HKane can you do the same? #cancer #threelions #ChildhoodCancer #nhs70 #Itscomminghome pic.twitter.com/En8TtKnVnG

“Hi Ben, I’ve seen your video and you are an inspiration. Carry on fighting and we’ll do everything we can on Saturday to keep a smile on your face! #BensWorldCup”
How lovely is that? And bless young Ben, I’m sure he’s in all our thoughts (and those who believe, prayers)
Come on then lovely folks, even just a fiver would be hugely appreciated by the QE doing such great work. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/bensworldcup
