QPR gave a special boost to a family in need as they invited the Hunts down to their Harlington training base on Tuesday.
David and Abby were recently dealt the heartbreaking news that their two-year old son, Freddie, has an inoperable brain tumour.
His only hope is proton treatment in the US, which will cost the family £100,000.
After learning the news, QPR’s director of football, Les Ferdinand, immediately contacted David and invited him and his family down to the training ground for a day they will cherish forever.
Ferdinand said: “We’re a family orientated club here at QPR, and we look after our own.

“When I heard the news about Freddie I was of course shocked, and got in touch with David straight away.
“I’m really pleased the family enjoyed their day, it’s the least we could have done.”

David - who has been a season ticket holder for more than 40 years - spent the day watching his heroes train, along with his five children, including Freddie, as they also had a guided tour of the training facilities from none other than Ferdinand himself, as well as manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
He added: “It’s been a surreal day for us - I’m just starstruck to be honest with you. We’re just a normal family at the end of the day, who keep ourselves to ourselves.
“This has given us all such a huge lift during what is a traumatic time for the family. The support we have received has been nothing short of incredible.”
So far over £25,000 has been raised through various events and a fundraising page. Show your support to Freddie by clicking on this link and donating.
