A couple from Norfolk have both been diagnosed with terminal cancer - within three weeks of each other.
It's a devastating blow but Ian and Jayne Lovewell from Norwich have vowed to live the rest of their lives to the full for the sake of their three children. Their youngest is just 12.
The get well cards keep arriving but Ian and Jayne Lovewell are unlikely to ever get well.
Ian was diagnosed first, a day after Jayne's 50th birthday in March. He has lung cancer which has spread to his brain and liver.
Within just weeks Jayne was told she had pancreatic cancer with the tumour spreading to her lungs.
The couple have never smoked, rarely drink and have led healthy lives. So it's hit their three children hard.
They do not know how long they have got but the are not ones to wallow. They have already helped raise £2,000 for the cancer charity the Big C and they are determined to remain positive for the sake of their children, particularly Mitchell who is just 12.
They have to keep going - their eldest son is getting married this time next year and they are both desperate to be around for the birth of their first grandchild.
In the meantime they are promising that their Pearl Wedding Anniversary in June is going to be be one heck of a party.
