Footballer Jack Grealish donates £5k for man’s leukemia treatment

Words by Blyth Brentnall

Manchester and England football player Jack Grealish has donated £5,000 towards an appeal to pay for a man’s leukemia treatment in the US.

Amazing. Who will this help?

Dylan Lamb, aged 20, discovered he had leukemia last year while studying at university. He was recently told the cancer has returned and he may have just months to live.

Family and friends immediately leapt to start fundraising for Dylan to receive a CAR-T treatment in the US, which is not available for his age group in the UK.

Jack Grealish’s donation contributes to a fundraising target of £1 million. Currently the fundraiser is approaching £150,000 a week since it launched.
