As we have drifted into the month of October, Arsenal hardman Granit Xhaka has posted a heartfelt tribute on the social media to families affected by breast cancer, as he laces up in eye-caching pink boots for Switzerland in the remaining World Cup qualifiers against Hungary and Portugal to raise awareness for the disease.
“Breast cancer is a horrible disease that affects entire families. Not just women – but children, husbands, mothers and fathers back home. It takes enormous strength and courage to go to battle with such an enemy every day of your life without losing hope. I’ll therefore proudly wear their fighting spirit on my boots.”
The Under Armour product, part of the “Power in Pink” campaign launched back in 2003, will be on sale for £180 and all the proceeds will be donated to breast cancer charity ‘The Haven’. The money donated by the campaign will support therapy in six centres and will treat around 50 people suffering from the disease.
