Following the good news about Abidal contract renewal here's another story about this wonderful man. Grab a box of kleenex and get ready to feel even more proud of this team.
A letter written to the Spanish newspaper "La Vanguardia" tells us the beautiful story starring FC Barcelona's French player and a kid affected by a similar tumor to the one Abidal had last year.
The letter explains how much it helped his son to get better, using Abidal as an example.

Afellay set for knee surgery
Barcelona's Dutch midfielder Ibrahim Afellay will undergo surgery tomorrow after suffering knee ligament damage in training today.
The Spanish and European champions did not indicate how long the 25-year-old will be sidelined for, but he could be out of action for as long as six months after going under the knife.
A statement from Barcelona this evening read: "Ibrahim Afellay suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during training on Thursday afternoon. The Barça No20 will have surgery tomorrow."
Afellay, who joined Barca from PSV Eindhoven in January, had just got back into Pep Guardiola's line-up after missing the start of the La Liga season due to a hamstring injury.
