Martin Southam from Derby was diagnosed with inoperable Pancreatic Cancer in 2012 and told he only had six or seven months to live.
After noticing he had jaundice he went to the doctor and was quickly referred for scans and surgery, but the tumour had grown around key veins and blood vessels. This meant an operation wasn't possible.
He decided to make the most of his remaining time with a trip to America along with his wide and daughters before beginning intensive rounds of chemotherapy. Happily, the tumour has now reduced in size and he's looking forward to becoming what he calls a "ten year survivor".
