Mickey Thomas’s life has been a rollercoaster of highs and lows, representing club and country at the highest level, including 90 appearances for his beloved Manchester United, but he is currently facing the biggest battle: beating cancer.
Diagnosed with stomach cancer in January 2019, Mickey starts chemo and radiotherapy treatment on 11th February, followed by an operation to remove the tumour and then another course of chemo.
Unable to work while going through treatment, Mickey has no source of income, so his friends are getting together to raise money to help cover his living and travel expenses, plus some of the medical expenses related to the treatments he requires – including having all of his teeth replaced.
He shouldn’t be worrying about money during this tough time; we want his focus to be on beating this awful disease and getting back with us all as soon as possible.
Still such a presence around Old Trafford and very much a part of the United family, Mickey is one of the most loveable guys you could meet. He is full of life, fun-loving and generous beyond belief, so please give what you can and join us in supporting him in his fight.
