THE sister of a young Glasgow woman who died of cancer at 27 have organised a charity football match next to the grounds of her beloved Rangers.

Danielle Hosie passed away at her home in Glasgow’s South Side two weeks ago after a relentless five-year fight against a cancer that affects only around one person every seven years.

The 27-year-old, from Mount Florida, endured 87 rounds of radiotherapy, eight months of chemotherapy, 20 operations and four blood transfusions after being diagnosed with Polymorphis Adenocarcinoma, a cancer of the face.

On Saturday, close family and friends of Danielle will take part in a football match that aims to raise hundreds for the Teenage Cancer Trust, which the family say was a huge support through her brave five-year fight.

The match, which is taking place at Ibrox Football Centre from 12-2pm, has been organised by Danielle’s sister Toni-Lea and has already raised hundreds for the charity.

Tonilea told how Danielle planned her funeral down to the smallest detail including requesting Rangers anthem Simply the Best at the church service.

She said: “Danielle was a really big Rangers fan so we felt it was appropriate

“We wanted to give something back to the Teenage Cancer Trust because they made her time in hospital more bearable.

“It’s just close friends and family who are paying £5 to play and I’ll be selling merchandise from the charity on the day.”

Mourners at Danielle’s funeral were told that the 27-year-old was still supporting others going through cancer, weeks before her death.

The humanist service was led by Kirsty Harvey, who said Danielle “blew her away,” with her bravery when she met her in hospital.

Tonilea said: “We are just trying to get used to a new normal now.”
