Verona's Moras donates bone marrow to brother

Hellas Verona defender Vangelis Moras is in Australia to donate bone marrow to his older brother Dimitris, who has leukemia.

The transplant will take place on Saturday.

Dimitris flew to Australia in March to visit his cousins but fell ill a week after his arrival, and was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

The 33-year-old Dimitris was advised that flying back to Greece was too risky, and started immediate treatment at Melbournes Alfred Hospital.

Thousands of dollars have been raised by the local Greek community to help pay for Dimitris treatment.

Vangelis, who recently signed a one-year contract extension, has been sent a training program to follow while he is in Australia by Veronas fitness coaches.

The 32-year-old Vangelis was part of Greeces World Cup squad but did not feature in Brazil. [AP]
