Importance of blood testing!
More shocking news has surfaced in the world of football – this time in the form of leukaemia. The Aston Villa captain, Stiliyan Petrov, 32, has been diagnosed with an acute type of the disease. Petrov’s leukaemia was only uncovered when the Aston Villa squad underwent heart screening and blood tests in the wake of Fabrice Muamba’s cardiac arrest a few weeks ago. 48 hours after the tests, he was told he was suffering from leukaemia and was booked in for treatment to begin immediately.
