Following the launch of our recent Life With Hibs campaign and after the publicity around our GameChanger initiative, we received a letter from a supporter.
A year ago Julie Roberts lost her dad, aged 69, to mesothelioma, an aggressive and incurable asbestos-driven lung cancer. He was a lifelong Hibs supporter, who would take Julie to Easter Road every other week.
Julie wrote a touching letter to the Club, and kindly agreed to tell her story. You can watch the video in the link below.
Julie has also written a blog on her Life With Hibs, which you can read through the link below.
Now we want to hear your Life With Hibs story.
Are you a born and bred Hibee or are you a first time fan? Perhaps Hibs have influenced your life beyond 90 minutes on a Saturday – a connection with a family member or interaction with the Hibernian Community Foundation.
If you have any worries about your own health, then please contact your GP.
