Terminally Ill Dutch Soccer Fan Gets Honored In Emotional Ceremony Just Days Before Death


This is Rooie Marck, a supporter of Dutch soccer team Feyenoord who was diagnosed with terminal cancer. There’s a remarkable video going around of Marck’s fellow Feyenoord fans honoring Rooie with flares and a giant banner while he stands on the field watching. It’s incredibly emotional, especially considering the fact that Marck wound up dying just three days later.
