The Football Association of Wales is to show support for Cymru players David Brooks and Dan Barden following their recent cancer diagnoses.

For David – who is undergoing treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma and – for Dan, receiving treatment for testicular cancer, the FAW have joined Tenovus Cancer Care, Wales’ leading cancer charity, to further help raise awareness of their free support line for anyone worried or affected by cancer.

Before Cymru take on Belarus, Tenovus Cancer Care will be hosting a bucket collection outside the stadium. There will also be a chance to get a limited edition Tenovus Cancer Care Cymru wristband and help the charity further help those affected by cancer across Wales.

Wales Supporters Team are also fundraising for Tenovus Cancer Care by playing their charity football game against an Alternative Wales XI. The match will be played in support of David Brooks and Dan Barden at the House of Sport, Leckwith at 2pm on Saturday. You can find more information HERE

There are sadly now over 130,000 people living with cancer in Wales and every 30 minutes someone new is diagnosed. Tenovus Cancer Care brings treatment, expert advice, and support to where it matters most, the heart of the communities across Wales.

Tenovus Cancer Care wants a future that gives anyone affected by cancer, in Wales and beyond, the best access to the treatment and support they need. A future that reduces the impact of cancer, gives people hope and helps them to live their best lives.
