His mum has posted on his Facebook page that he died this morning, it hasn't made the news sites yet.

I first posted about him a few weeks ago when he had made his final post and was expected to die. His lung had collapsed and he couldn't talk anymore. He hung on for a few days before couching up a tumour, his lung reinflated and a few days later he was able to leave hospital.

He was able to then break a world record to tick something else off his bucket list.

A day or two ago however his condition again deteriorated and he was back in hospital, tumours again blocking his air ways and his family said it was not looking good and he could no longer communicate.


When he first hit the national news a few weeks ago he brought out the best in the nation and donations to his just giving page soared to over three million.

Then he brought out the worst in some as people began to complain that he wasn't dead enough and took to Twitter to complain that everyone who had donated has been conned.


As I said last time he faced cancer head on, and he done good.
