Perth Glory is delighted to confirm that Saturday’s home clash with Brisbane Roar is this year’s designated DT38 Matchday!
Created in February 2015 in memory of Dylan James Tombides, the DT38 Foundation has been an official charity partner of the club for several years and their matchday event is always one of the highlights of the season.
Perth-born Dylan was an Australian international and West Ham United professional football player who passed away aged 20 in April 2014 after a three-year battle with testicular cancer.
The West Ham Family thought so highly of Dylan that they retired his number 38 and made DT38 one of their principal charities.
The charity was formed as a result of Dylan being misdiagnosed, with its vision being to change the way testicular cancer is diagnosed by implementing best practice diagnostic guidelines for patients who present with testicular symptoms.
DT38 also aims to arm future generations of young men with the necessary knowledge about testicular cancer that will enable them to be confident when taking health matters into their own hands.
In addition to raising awareness of testicular cancer, the foundation seeks to change the stigma associated with men’s health issues via educational programs.
