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".
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital now has a piece of equipment which can help deliver cancer-killing drugs with the sort of precision normally found in a cruise missile. The cyberknife system cost more than £3 million pounds and means patients could have to spend less time having treatment.
The new cyberknife costs more than £3 million and is based at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. It is the first machine of its kind outside London and has revolutionised cancer treatment by directing radiation to a specific spot in the body.
It uses the same sort of technology found in cruise missiles to help patients get back on their feet more quickly.
West Brom star Youssouf Mulumbu has backed a campaign to raise awareness for the symptoms of kidney cancer.
The midfielder has told the club's official website: "It's great that the club is supporting this national bladder and kidney cancer campaign - I'm proud to be part of it.
"Hopefully more people will know that if they notice blood in their pee, it's time to visit the doctor."

Incidence rates of the disease have jumped by 31% over the last 10 years and mortality rates have increased by 7% over the last decade.
West Bromwich Albion has thrown its support behind the campaign by installing heat-reactive material in urinals in the East stand of its stadium in Sandwell. When used, the urinals will show the message about blood in the pee as a key symptom of bladder and kidney cancers.

Despite everything I actually feel very lucky. I very quickly decided that the best way to get through the experience would be to lead a much healthier lifestyle and try and focus on others that are worse off than me. I hope to use what was a very difficult and life-threatening experience for me to raise awareness about the woeful lack of funding for research into brain tumours - a disease which kills more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer.
