Ghanaian Politician John Dumelo has called on all to support Basketball Player Gerald Sappor who was recently diagnosed with Leukemia.

The multiple award winning Actor made the call ahead of a special basketball tournament to be played on Sunday, February 9 at the University of Ghana (UG) Main Court. The event tips off at 15:00 GMT.

A host of teams are scheduled to participate in the one day competition to raise awareness about leukemia and raise funds to support the Nungua Coldstore and Tema Youth Power Forward.

Dumelo is a Guest Speaker at the event and stated:

“There is strength in numbers… and we are calling each and every one of you to join us in forming a stable support system for our brother. This is beyond basketball. I stand with Gerald and together we shall fight leukemia”.

Sappor graduated from the University of Ghana (UG) in 2019 after helping the University win multiple titles including the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) Basketball Championship.

With Coldstore, Sappor has won two Tema Community Basketball League titles.
