Semitrailer's tribute to Tuff Timmy
Dyldam Parramatta Eels winger Semi Radradra has shown his support for Tuff Timmy on the field on Saturday night against the Sydney Roosters.
Each game, the Semitrailer adds the names of his family and loved ones to the tape on both wrists, and in Round 23, he wrote the name of his mate, Tuff Timmy, flashing Tim's name to the camera after scoring his nineteenth four-pointer of the year.
Nine-year-old Tim Jelacic has been in and out of hospital for much of his life fighting multiple brain tumours, and along with MRIs, anaesthetic and surgery, he’s also been through a lifetime's supply of radiation therapy.
‘Little Tim’ just happens to be born on the same day as our skipper ’Big Tim’ Mannah, and with support from across the community, and well as the Mannah Foundation, Tim was able to achieve an incredible bucket list, including visiting his family in the US and seeing Disneyland.
The Blue and Gold are so happy to be able to know and spend time with Tim and his family - click through to find out more about two of the fantastic charities his family supports, Ronald McDonald House - one of the Eels Gold Charity Partners - and the Starlight Children's Foundation.
