A 23-year-old man recently diagnosed with bowel cancer has married the love of his life with just weeks to live.
Felix Glenny wed Cola Glenny, 22, in his Kent hospital bed at the weekend, according to London's Daily Mail.
Mr Glenny was admitted to hospital in November with stomach cramps. Doctors found a large tumour in his bowel.
Surgeons removed the mass but when tests showed that the incurable cancer had spread the couple decided to marry immediately.
The Daily Mail reports that Mr Glenny, who is in Medway Maritime Hospital, and his new wife have two children - Ralph, 2, and Pearl, 4 months.
After finding out on Friday that the cancer was terminal, the English couple invited their friends and family to the ceremony by the hospital chaplain.
'"After a second operation last Friday they discovered that the cancer had spread everywhere. That's it now, there's no stopping it," Cola told the Daily Mail. "When they told us I had to leave the room - it was too much to take it.
"After it all settled down and we got our heads round it as much as we could, Felix just said he wanted to get married as soon as we could. We arranged it for yesterday.
"It was crazy because we were really happy, but it was so emotional.
"It was a lovely day and we've been thinking about it today, saying "It was perfect and it couldn't have gone any better".
"We had talked about getting married even before he was ill - and when we found out the cancer was terminal we wanted to do it straight away.
"Felix managed to get out of bed and we went over the the social club and had a ceremony - the Chaplain from the hospital came over and gave us a blessing.
"It was a really nice day and everyone really helped us out. All of our family was there and a lot of our friends."
Felix, who is also known as Ryan, met through mutual friends in Lower Stoke, Kent, in August 2010. They fell in love and within a year the couple had moved in together and Cola was pregnant with Ralph.
Cola, a hairdresser, and Felix, who works for a water supply company, lived happily together for two years and had a second child, Pearl.
Just weeks after the birth, Felix experienced severe stomach pains but doctors repeatedly him he wasn't seriously ill.
Their concerns were ignored despite the fact that three of Felix's family members had recently died of bowel cancer, the couple told the Mail.
"He was ill two weeks prior to being taken in to hospital, we kept going up there and they kept turning us away, saying it was a bug," Cola said. "We had three ambulances out. We rang 111 and we told him all his symptoms, and they sent ambulances. Twice they took us to hospital.
"Once they said it was a kidney infection, another time they said it was irritable bowels and one of the other times they didn't even take us to the hospital because they said there was nothing wrong with him.
"In Emergency they said it was a sickness bug. I told him he has a family history of bowel cancer, but they just weren't interested.
"This time we weren't going to be fobbed off again - we basically said to people at the hospital and said we're not going anywhere until it's sorted.
"Then a surgeon had a feel of his tummy and could feel something in his bowels, and that's when they did the CT scan and found it was cancer.
"It was awful finding out - we've got two small children. He's been in hospital since. In the four weeks since he had his tumour removed the cancer spread quite far.
"Felix is really comfortable at the moment. He's got his head round everything and just wants to spend time with the kids, me and his family.
"He's been really really positive, and is trying to think of the kids."
