Good Luck Lee

Good luck to Lee Nicholson, whose son plays for our Under 11 team Portland, who is taking part in a charity boxing match tonight (Fri 1st July) to raise funds for Lucy Morgan.

Lucy has had seizures form just before her first birthday but in april 2008 she had a long seizure that left her in a coma 2 ½ weeks and in hospital for 3 months. When she diagnosed two rare genetic disorders main one is autosomal dominant acute necrotising encephalopathy (ADANE) and homocysinuria which her body makes too much protein.This has left her wheelchair bound and blind in one eye,she is at villa real school and takes a cocktail drugs to get through each day.”

Lee is doing ‘fit to fight’ to raise funds for Lucy.  Donations can be made via ‘just giving’ by clicking here

Good luck Lee :)
