But after weeks of no improvement, Hunter's parents rushed him to the ER.</p>Hunter Brady, 16, began feeling tired and weak back in November and the family doctor determined he likely had the flu, WFTS reports.

I was sent for a chest x-ray that day and then my doctor called me a little while later to tell me he thought I had blood cancer . "Unfortunately you're terminal and there is nothing else we can do." In 2017, they gave me four weeks to a year to live .

The cancer was inoperable and chemotherapy, even if it worked, would add only a few weeks to Sharyn's life. The tumours had gone and I was told to leave the hospital and live a full life. In February, the journal Lung Cancer reported on a man whose tumours had spontaneously disappeared .

Leicester Tigers captain and former England rugby player Tom Youngs' wife Tiff was diagnosed with cancer, which she was told was terminal in 2013.

His brother, Leicester and England scrum-half Ben Youngs, pulled out of the British and Irish Lions squad following their family's devastating news.

Here, Tiff shares her journey with Sky News:

I had just had my daughter Maisie in 2013 when I developed an awful cold and cough.

I Spotted My Own Cancer in the Mirror—and It Saved My Life

  I Spotted My Own Cancer in the Mirror—and It Saved My Life Everyone checks the mirror in the morning before heading out the door; no one expects it to save their life. It did for Erin Kobetz, PhD, MPH, a cancer researcher at the University of Miami. Six weeks into her new job at the University, Kobetz noticed something odd about her throat as she got ready for work: “There’s no real way to explain it, other than my neck looked funny,” Dr. Kobetz recalls. Alarmed, she immediately made an appointment with her primary care physician. Her doctor agreed that her neck appeared unusual—but couldn’t say why. Dr.

The cancer was inoperable and chemotherapy, even if it worked, would add only a few weeks to 'The hospital said treatment was an option, but not a cure, and that I had a year to live , at best.' In February, the journal Lung Cancer reported on a man whose tumours had spontaneously disappeared .

It just wouldn't shift so I went to the doctor and had a blood test which showed "something" in my bloods.

I was sent for a chest x-ray that day and then my doctor called me a little while later to tell me he thought I had blood cancer.

Tom was at the club training and I called his PA to try to get into contact with him.

I was in a state.

Tom rang me straight back and rushed home - which is pretty much unheard of during training.

A biopsy confirmed I had Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system, which is a network of vessels and glands spread throughout your body.

I was 28. You never think you're going to get that news.

Tom collapsed to the floor with shock.

We didn't know what to do.

But everyone was telling me that it's treatable and lots of people were saying it's the most curable one you can have.

The Unexpected Side Effect of Cervical Cancer Treatment

  The Unexpected Side Effect of Cervical Cancer Treatment When lifesaving cervical cancer treatments have an unexpected side effect For eight years, I struggled with vaginismus — painful intercourse, involuntary muscle spasms and the inability to wear tampons. After long bouts of desperation, I visited a specialist who specifically worked with patients on this issue. I called in to make an appointment, and the staff reminded me that the doctor made patients who had cancer a priority — they would call me once a spot opened up.Of course, my issue seemed minuscule in comparison, and I was more than willing to wait in the line.

So I have some idea as how you feel, after a week of test they found that I did not have cancer (but keep in mind that the tumors I have can turn cancer . I have lived and I have loved and I have given my love. But another 10 rounds of weekly taxol chemo and the cancer disappeared again, and I

A British cancer patient astonished doctors when 70 potentially lethal tumors disappeared from his body in just twelve weeks . The checkups revealed 60-70 scattered tumors from the head to the abdomen and the doctors said he had a few weeks to live .

So I thought I'd have six months of treatment and that would be it.

I had a donor's stem cell transplant, but I had to wait a while due to three or four donors failing, so I had to go onto another lot of treatment in Manchester.

I had four years of treatment in total.

I had my head shaved twice throughout treatment over the four years.

I didn't see my daughter at one point for four weeks while I was in hospital.

"Unfortunately you're terminal and there is nothing else we can do."

In 2017, they gave me four weeks to a year to live.

I had to tell my daughter.

Me, Tom and Maisie were sat on my bed, having a giggle and I just had to tell her.

I said mummy has been very poorly, and that mummy would be going to heaven.

She started crying. It's the worst thing I have ever had to do and I don't wish it on anyone.

I then started getting my affairs in order.

I wrote down the cleaner's number, the neighbour's number, I gave people our house keys, I had guardians in place and I started looking for a full-time nanny to help Tom.

When the Love of My Life Was Given One Month to Live , a WFPB Diet Gave Us More Time. After a couple of weeks , the headache became so strong that he went directly to the ER. After a couple of tests, we got the news that he had brain cancer .

' I beat cancer again': Four-year-old who was given just weeks to live stuns doctors after scans reveal her 12 tumours have vanished. A four-year-old girl who had at least a dozen cancerous tumours had been given just weeks to live - but stunned medics when they vanished.

I sold all my clothes, gave everything to charity shops, I had a massive clear out and threw lots of stuff away.

I planned my funeral - I chose my picture, my music, told my family how I wanted to die.

I felt guilty and a burden to everybody, I didn't want anyone to have anything to do.

Tom is very close with his brother Ben, and Ben took the decision to miss the Lions tour when we found out I was terminal.

I just felt awful, like I was jeopardising his career and like I was a burden on everybody.

But of course nobody saw it that way, it was just me.

Tom even banned me from using the word "burden".

It probably took me about two and a half years after I was diagnosed to actually accept help from people.

I did worry a lot about how my illness was affecting everybody else.

But in July, I decided "I'm not going anywhere".

I decided that I hadn't had a child for her to grow up without a mother.

I want to bring her up, so I decided to try an alternative treatment.

I had nothing to lose - if it gave me an extra week with her it was worth it.

So I went to London twice a week to see these two ladies recommended to me by someone.

This 38-Year-Old Died From Cervical Cancer After Her Doctor Claimed Her Symptoms Were From Breastfeeding

  This 38-Year-Old Died From Cervical Cancer After Her Doctor Claimed Her Symptoms Were From Breastfeeding <p>When cervical cancer is detected at an early stage, the disease has a high survival rate. But by the time Louise Gleadell, a 38-year-old mom of three, was diagnosed, the cancer was more advanced.&nbsp;</p>It's not that Gleadell ignored her symptoms. When she reported them to her doctor, they were dismissed as side effects of recently giving birth and breastfeeding her youngest son, now 2, her family stated on her GoFundMe page.

Ashley went for yet another one of her treatments and it was discovered that all of the cancer had disappeared . Given Ashley’s track record and her will to live and fight, absolutely not! She went on to have a second beautiful baby two years later… and then a third!

A former bodybuilder given just weeks to live after being diagnosed with cancer today blamed his Dean Wharmby was told he had just weeks to live in November after a large tumour was found on But then the personal trainer from Rochdale, Greater Manchester, became unwell five-and-a-half And for a year, it was successful: Mr Wharmby's tumour disappeared . 'But I got complacent,' he

I told Tom we needed to be open-minded.

I went on a very, very strict diet plan of juices, no dairy, no red meat, no sugar, no tea or coffee - basically just fish and green juices.

I was fasting from 7pm until noon the next day.

I did that for three months and I felt amazing on it.

Then the other lady treated me with an ENS cosmodic machine treatment which basically tells your brain to tell your body to produce the cells it's not producing.

It's like a rollerball deodorant and it has three metal prongs and you just go up and down your back.

My dad bought me the same machine and I started to do it.

I also started taking THC cannabis oil after reading so much about it in the news.

I just started to feel better and I even woke up on a few mornings feeling like "I don't think I've got it anymore".

But obviously I was very cautious about thinking that way.

In February this year, I came down with a cold and went into hospital because I didn't feel well.

I had a scan and the consultant came in and told me it was clear.

I was in remission.

I was on my own - my mum, Tom and my daughter had gone out to get some food - so I called Tom and I told him to put me on loudspeaker.

I shouted: "It's gone!"

I rang my dad, he was very emotional, he dropped the phone I think.

I told my brother and sister.

It was just unbelievable.

From being told you are going to die, to then finding out you're not, it's incredibly hard and it's such an adjustment.

I had told my parents and Tom where I wanted to be, where I wanted to end my life, I'd written my will.

I'd given my godchildren money, one of my friends had a tattoo to remember me.

I had prepared to die.

But Maisie kept me going.

I wanted to see her start school.

I wanted to see her birthday.

I would set goals and I would achieve them and that pushed me through.

I have so many people to thank as well as my family.

The rugby fans, everybody at every club have sent messages; coaches, players, and Leicester Tigers have been absolutely amazing.

I really can't thank them enough.

Especially my husband, who did everything to help and support me through this long journey.
