Knock­out!

help Lee to go on hol­i­day.

“We would like to say thanks to Joanne Mur­phy and Ni­cole Coia for shav­ing our heads.”

Lee has been given sup­port from cur­rent and for­mer sports stars since he was di­ag­nosed with can­cer ear­lier this year.

Box­ing cham­pion Tyson Fury sent the young­ster au­to­graphed gloves and WBC in­ter­na­tional heavy­weight cham­pion Antony Joshua sent him a mes­sage of sup­port via Twit­ter.

Cur­rent Rangers man­ager Mark War­bur­ton also sent Lee his best wishes while for­mer Rangers play­ers, Paul Gas­coigne, Na­cho Novo, David Weir and Alex Rae posted pic­tures on­line to sup­port the boxer on his jour­ney.

So far, more than £3,560 has been raised to fund Lee’s trip to Amer­ica.

Lee, who boxes for Jonesys ABC in Ban­nock­burn, suf­fers from Non-Hodgkin lym­phoma which is an un­com­mon can­cer that de­vel­ops in the lym­phatic sys­tem.

It is a net­work of ves­sels and glands spread through­out Lee’s body.

The most com­mon symp­tom of NonHodgkin lym­phoma is a pain­less swelling in a lymph node, usu­ally in the neck, armpit or groin.
