Hi everyone, it's Stephen here- still here and still fighting!!! Throughout the whole journey I've been realistic... http://t.co/s6F2wzmv7k

He wrote on his Facebook page: "I genuinely thought I was a goner.... But hey, I'm still here!!"

"I am still in a very vulnerable position," he continued.

"I am very limited in what I can do and am still permanently hooked up to oxygen.

"But I am in high spirits and blessed to have so much love and support around me.

"To get to see the million pound fundraising target being reached was just phenomenal!"
