Stephen Sutton, the 19-year-old cancer patient who has raised more than £1.5m for charity, has tweeted to say he is "still fighting" after thinking he had lost his battle with the illness earlier this week.
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!"
