    Before the game started

    Have I made any mistakes?

    Before the game started, Ben Collins, a manager who is still struggling against leukaemia, walked onto the pitch to greet the fans. He was met with applause, cheers and shouts "You're a hero, Ben!" He waved at the crowd, got tears in his eyes and went to the dugout, where he sat down and covered his face with his hands. A couple of the players came up and gave him a hug. The scene was so moving, and it looked like everyone in the stadium was crying and praying for the manger to overcome the terrible illness.

    Re: Before the game started

    It's not terrible, but you could also say:

    struggling with leukemia

    Or:

    fighting leukemia
