The death of the Miguel Van Damme this week, confronts us all once again with the cruelty of cancer. A few weeks ago, Didier Jacobs, a loyal fan of RSC Anderlecht, also succumbed to the disease.
The Foundation against Cancer is one of the biggest actors in the fight against cancer in Belgium. As a national and independent centre of expertise, the Foundation approaches cancer research with a broad view and is part of an extensive international network.
In order to illustrate the initiative of RSC Anderlecht, a tribute will be paid to Didier Jacobs before the match against Charleroi. The players will play with a mourning band bearing Miguel Van Damme's jersey number 16 and a minute's applause will resound at Lotto Park. Didier Jacobs' daughter, along with the CEO and Chairman of the Foundation, will enter the field.
"As RSC Anderlecht, we are happy to contribute by raising funds that will be used by the Foundation to further develop cancer research and to support patients."
Peter Verbeke, CEO of RSC Anderlecht
