"Was that a bit of a surprise?"

Posted on

Ten-year-old Finn Middleton has a rare form of cancer called metastatic rhabdomyosarcoma that has seen him undergo chemotherapy and lose the use of his right eye.

But Finn's glass is half full."It’s my eye that’s broken you see," Finn said on a Just Giving page he set up when he was just 6 years old. "It just closed one day. I wasn’t bothered really; I’ve got two eyes so I just used the other one."He's been battling for four years, and he's still going strong.

But Finn's glass is half full.

"It’s my eye that’s broken you see," Finn said on a Just Giving page he set up when he was just 6 years old. "It just closed one day. I wasn’t bothered really; I’ve got two eyes so I just used the other one."

He's been battling for four years, and he's still going strong.

He's a huge fan of football team Manchester City, so the club invited him to go and watch a match one day and even made him his own shirt.

It's fair to say that Finn was quite happy about this.

They also put his name on the big screen, alongside a picture of his hero – Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart.

But then something amazing happened. Finn was invited to lead Manchester City out on to the pitch, hand in hand with Joe Hart.

Good luck not crying at this video.

After the match he even got to met Man City and Argentina star Sergio Aguero.
