Sydney Hammer Mick Goddard has told of the plight of his brave seven year old West Ham mad son Kai who has received heart surgery for the third time in his young life.
Speaking on the Sydney Hammers Facebook group earlier this month dad Mike said “This morning my son went in for his third open heart surgery and he insisted that we both wear our West Ham jerseys. And he asked that I post this pic to my Hammers friends COYI ‘X'”
After the surgery Mike posted “Thank you guys really appreciate your support. Surgery went well and he is recovering nicely with his WHUFC jersey by his side”
Mike and his family has been touched by messages of support all around the world and not just from West Ham fans but supporters around the world.
On Saturday Claret and Hugh Associate editor Sean Whetstone caught up with Sydney Hammers chairman Robbie Byrne in a South London pub before the palace match, Robbie spoke about Mike and his son. The full interview can be heard later tonight on www.moorethanjustapodcast.co.uk.
Robbie said “Mike Goddard is a big Sydney Hammer, he makes these beautiful bumper stickers for the boys. His son Kai has had his third open heart surgery and when he was in bed he had his West Ham jersey right at the top by his pillow. We send our best wishes to Mick, his son Kai and his family, we are all thinking of them. We have had an amazing response from around the world, not just West Ham fans but Premier League teams all around the world tweeting us, putting messages on facebook and it’s great to see the support from everyone! Best to Mick and his family!”
We at Claret and Hugh and Moore Than Just A podcast would like to add our best wishes and Kai gets well very soon!
We ae all thinking about you
