Villarreal’s players took to the pitch with t-shirts supporting the youngster
Before the game with Athletic Club, Villarreal CF’s starting XI took to the pitch with a t-shirt of support for Zoe, the 14-month-old youngster from Vila-real, who was born with a complex heart condition, and needs surgery in Boston. The shirts worn by the Yellows during the game against Athletic, and those that they were against Levante will be auctioned to raise funds for the cause. The Basque side also wanted to collaborate and donated two of the match shirts, which will also be go up for auction.
Zoe suffers from Tetralogy of Fallot and pulmonary atresia. Her parents, Abel Prieto and Laura Branchadell, need 172,000 Euros for the youngster to undergo surgery for the first time at Boston Children’s Hospital on 27th January. Two or three years later, there would be a second operation, which would cost 222,000 Euros.
The time limit to raise funds for the first operation is until 10th January, and the family have currently raised 50,000 Euros. Villarreal CF will collaborate economically and will also be involved in a number of fundraising actions to raise the necessary money.
