Hopoate and Reynolds visit Ziad

Josh Reynolds and Will Hopoate have taken time out from their busy pre-season training schedule to spend time with Ziad Soltani.

Ziad, a 12-year old Bulldogs Member who was diagnosed with inoperable Brain Tumour in July this year, had two operations to control life threatening secondary problems leaving him with permanent side effects and the prospect of full paralysis within 12 months and the possibility of death before he would graduate from high school.

Ziad and his family were given a lifeline by Dr. Charlie Teo, a leading Australian Neuro Surgeon who was moved by the plight of Ziad’s family and agreed to assist.
