 JOHOR BARU - Gutsy teenagers like Gan Cheng Wei are the reason why cliches like "down but not out" should be repeated regularly.

Despite being diagnosed with leukaemia in March, the state badminton player is determined to return to the game he loves so much.

World No 1 Datuk Lee Chong Wei has stepped in to set up a fund to pay for the teenager's medical treatment.Teen with leukaemia determined to play badminton for state againTeen with leukaemia determined to play badminton for state again

The fund received a donation of RM10,000 (S$4,094) from Teori Warisan Sdn Bhd, the developer of Seasons Luxury Apartments.

Cheng Wei's elder sister, Mei Ying, 34, who received the donation on behalf of her brother, said her family members were thankful that Lee had started the initiative.

LEE Chong Wei was not fluent but did just enough to beat long-time rival Sony Dwi Kuncoro of Indonesia for his fourth consecutive Malaysia Open Grand Prix Gold title in Johor Baru yesterday.

Chong Wei dropped the first game against Sony, who has been troubled by injuries for the last two years, but came back strongly to win 17-21, 21-8, 21-10 in 50 minutes. Sony, who last played Chong Wei in the 2010 Indonesia Open, looked to be in the mood and put the World No 1 under a lot of pressure in the first game to win 21-17.
