Family issue party invite
The mother of a Cambuslang lad who beat cancer is throwing a party to celebrate - and she wants the whole community to join her.
Whitney Watson and Robert McGregor were left overjoyed last month when it was confirmed their four-yearold son, Bobby McGregor, had been given the all-clear after suffering from lymphoblastic leukaemia.
Little Bobby’s incredible story was revealed in the Reformer and he captured the hearts of people all over Rutherglen and Cambuslang.
He underwent chemotherapy nearly every day for three years before being told his treatment had finished.
Whitney has now arranged the family fun day for September 2 at the Newton Arms pub. Starting at 1pm, there will be a buffet, a candy cart, a balloon maker and a face painter.
Also paying a visit will be Bobby’s favourite superhero, Spider-Man.
Whitney said the day is not a fundraiser but just a chance for the community to celebrate with the family.
She added:“I want everyone to come celebrate with us, and I mean everyone.”
The day will start at 1pm.
A 22-year-old woman will stand trial for behaving in an aggressive manner.
