Talking about the campaign, Stiliyan said: “The team at the Centre for Clinical Haematology at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham have been with me in my battle against leukaemia for many months. I have personal experience of how important it is to have access to specialist nurses, clinicians, pioneering drugs and treatments. Without the help of Cure Leukaemia, all this would not be available for other patients with their own battles with this disease.
“What we’re trying to do is draw people’s awareness to this illness and do something practical by raising funds and helping to combat the disease. I’m delighted that the cause has been supported by my team-mates and my colleagues throughout the Premier League. It’s very touching and the amount of money we raise can make a real difference.”
