DJ Mallorca Lee has been told he has months to live following a terminal cancer diagnosis.

The 51-year-old Ultra Sonic star broke the news of his diagnosis on his Facebook page on Tuesday afternoon.

A post on the page read: “I’ve been diagnosed with terminal cancer, the doctor said it could be a matter of months.

“I apologise for not telling all of my family and friends individually, it just breaks my heart a thousand times and I don’t have the strength to go through it all over and over again.

The National:

“I love you all, the last ten years have been the best of them all, it really has been wonderful.

“Forgive me if I don’t answer your calls and messages, I’m still processing, even this post feels like someone else is writing it…”

“Love, that’s all we ever really have, our one true currency, so tell the ones around you what they mean to you, every day.”

The post has drawn hundreds of comments from well-wishers, including Clyde One DJ George Bowie who said: “You will always be a legend to so many. Glad I got to meet you twice in my life time.

“Ultra Sonic shaped my interest in hardcore and techno from a young age of 12. I’m now 40.”
