Student, 20, given £5k by Man City star Jack Grealish dies of leukaemia after getting weeks to live | The Sun

A STUDENT who was given £5,000 by Jack Grealish has died of leukaemia after getting just weeks to live.

Dylan Lamb thought he'd pulled a muscle and went to the doctor with back pain earlier this year.

The 20-year-old was then diagnosed with Precursor T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia.

Dylan, from Burton-upon-Trent, Staffordshire, died at home surrounded by his family on Saturday evening.

A post on social media read: "He went in his sleep with his family by his side, having said his goodbyes to all of his friends the day before and he was still full of laughs and jokes."

Dylan's friends continued: "I cannot put into words the love that us lads and Dylan's family have felt through this difficult time.

"We cannot thank everyone enough for the continued support and love.

It has so far raised more than £170,000, while his friends took on the Three Peaks Challenge.
