Bex and Spencer Lee, of Churchfield Way, Wisbech St Mary, say were “petrified” when they found out about their 20 year-old son’s diagnosis.

Spencer, whose father died of cancer, said it was a “shock”.

Billy’s mother, Bex, said: “When we were told Billy had cancer it was our worst nightmare. We know a lot of people who have had cancer and a lot of them didn’t come through it. We were petrified.”

A 10cm tumour was removed when Billy’s right leg and hip were amputated on January 21.
