Ronaldo to pay for 10 months old baby treatment

                               Donating: The Portuguese star is well known for helping charitable causes
Cristiano Ronaldo has shown his soft side by offering to pay for the operation of a 10 month old baby born with a neurological disorder.
Erik Ortiz Cruz suffers up to 30 epileptic fits a day and surgery is the only solution to his condition. 

The boy's family have been unable to meet massive hospital bills with each test carried out costing around £5,020 (6,000 euros) and surgery likely to run to £50,240 (60,000 euros).              
                                     Care: Erik was born with a neurological disorder and he desperately needed the operation

So big-hearted Ronaldo, touched by the boy’s local community’s attempts to raise the money themselves, has stepped in to fund the life changing medical care.
The player was at first asked to donate boots and a shirt to a fund-raising auction but decided to go the extra mile and foot the bill.

Earlier in the year Ronaldo celebrated his Ballon D’Or win with children suffering from Leukaemia keeping a promise made on Spanish radio last year.
Ronaldo met the children on radio Cope show Partido de la 12 in November and said if he won he would celebrate with them.
Following the celebrations he spoke to one of the children - who will have an operation this month - and told the youngster: 'Don't worry I have not forgotten'.
