‘An inspiration to meet such a brave young lady’

26 Oct, 2015

Beckham writes a tribute to Howard, who he met several times, after she dies from a rare heart condition aged 20.

Words cannot describe how amazing this young lady has been over the years and it was an inspiration to meet such a brave young lady with so much drive for helping others. Kirsty has been defying doctors for many years and whilst doing that she has been raising millions of pounds for terminally ill children…I met Kirsty in 2002 when she became the nation’s and my good luck charm for the game against Greece, we also met the queen together in Manchester so you could say we have spent some amazing moments together over the years.
