EZE Group granted another deserving Blues fan an EZE Wish last month, as part of our EZe Wish Campaign.
Blues fan Kieran Stanley was given a rare chance to see behind the scenes of important pre-match preparations, prior to the recent fixture at home to Sheffield Wednesday. He had the opportunity to assist the club kit manager before the match.
Kieran is sixteen and lives in Sheldon and has courageously battled Cystic Fibrosis from age one. He is a regular supporter in the Tilton Road Stand, along with his dad John, who nominated Kieran for his EZE Wish. After the game Kieran was treated to VIP hospitality in the EZE Group executive box.
Kieran has to undergo physiotherapy twice a day, but still gets on with his life as normally as he is able to. His dad John says, “He was diagnosed when he was just one, but despite everything he has never complained and has just learnt to deal with the illness. Kieran is a fitness fanatic and the doctors are amazed at how well he has done.”
Since he started supporting Birmingham City, Kieran has hardly missed a game at St. Andrew’s and he and his dad regularly travel to away fixtures.
John added, “It’s brilliant for him to help the kit manager prepare the dressing room and a great gesture by EZE Group and the club. Kieran lives and breathes the Blues and I’m sure it is something he will cherish for the rest of the life.”
EZE Wishes are part of a campaign to recognise those supporters who have shown outstanding loyalty to the club, have overcome hardships or are extraordinary members of the community. If you know a deserving Blues fan, you could grant their wish to meet players, be a mascot on match day or enjoy VIP hospitality in the executive box.
