belfast boxer stephen mcmullan given homecoming date after nine months in hospital

Stephen McMullan

The family of Stephen McMullan say the Belfast boxer will get out of hospital next month.

The Newington ABC heavyweight has been receiving treatment since being taken to hospital after fighting in the Ulster Elite final on December 9 last year. Stephen fell ill the day after losing to Monkstown’s Charlie Boyle at Girdwood Community Hub.

He spent five weeks in Intensive Care at Royal Victoria Hospital before being moved to the stroke ward. He was then transferred to Musgrave brain injury unit for “intense rehabilitation” in April.

Now Stephen is preparing to return home, and his family have invited friends to share his big moment on September 15.

The Stephen McMullan Fundraiser Facebook Page said: “Just a wee message Stephen gets out of hospital on Thursday 15th September we wanna celebrate for him.

“If any of Stephen’s friends and family want to come and help us celebrate his homecoming you are more than welcome. He will be absolutely delighted to see everyone. Thanks.

“We will update with a time he will be arriving home to the house as soon as we get it.”

Stephen’s cousin Mary Toman started a fundraising page earlier this year and has already raised over £12,000.

Money raised will go towards Stephen’s intensive rehabilitation, as well as an eyegaze computer system to enable him to communicate with others.

Any funds not used towards Stephen’s recovery will be donated to ICU and the Stroke Ward in The Royal Victoria Hospital.

If you would like to donate to Stephen’s fundraising page, you can do so here.
