Both Jimmy Jeggo and Bruce Djite have been announced as the Little Heroes foundations newest celebrity ambassadors.
It seems fitting that Jimmy Jeggo, who fought and won his battle with leukema, and team-mate Bruce Djite, who recently came a first time dad, have become ambassadors.
“It means a lot to me. It’s something that is very close to home,” said Jeggo.
“The experience of going through chemotherapy has only made me stronger.
“I’ve been through what a lot of these kids have been through and know what its like.”
The 23-yeard old midfielder is fully recovered, but was diagnosed with leukaemia aged 16.
“Now to be in a position where I can help them and maybe even give them someone to look up to means a lot to me,” said Jeggo.
“It’s tough when you’re going through it, but you learn to enjoy the little things like spending time with your family and having fun.
“There will be tough times but there’s always a brighter time ahead.”
