A CELEBRATION of an “inspirational” teenager’s life takes place at a North Berwick church tomorrow (Friday).

Reon McSherry, 14, who had battled leukaemia, sadly passed away last Thursday.

His family said: “Reon was an inspiration to all who knew him and will be forever missed.”

Reon, of North Berwick, was diagnosed with leukaemia in April 2016 and required a bone marrow transplant. Older brother Ciaran was found to be a match and a transplant took place in October 2016.

A year later, Reon relapsed and required a second stem cell transplant, which saw his brother go through five days of injections before a procedure to extract seven-and-a-half million cells followed.

In March this year, it was announced that the CLIC Sargent Home From Home at the new Royal Hospital for Children and Young People on the site of the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh would be called Ciaran’s House, in recognition of Ciaran twice giving his brother transplants.

A celebration of Reon’s life will take place at St Andrew Blackadder Church, North Berwick, tomorrow at 10am.

A retiral collection will be taken in support of leukaemia charities.
