A blood cancer survivor and North Wales footballer is urging people to become life-saving blood donors in Wales.
Daniel Gosset, 26, from Y Felinheli, is known for his displays in midfield, playing for the likes of The New Saints, Rhyl, Bangor City, Cefn Druids and Bala Town. But following his diagnosis with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a rare type of cancer affecting the body’s white blood cells, in August 2019, Daniel’s awareness of the need for blood and blood components grew significantly.
Coinciding with lockdown restrictions due to the pandemic, his diagnosis led to him taking 18 months away from the pitch to undergo treatment and recover. He received chemotherapy as well as radiotherapy as part of his treatment plan to overcome cancer.
