哈羅蓋特的父親在與癌症作鬥爭後將陪同女兒走過紅毯

一位在2019年只剩下8個月壽命的父親說,當他準備陪女兒走過紅地毯時,他感覺 "自己是最幸運的人"。

來自哈羅蓋特的60歲的肖恩-吉尼斯在2011年接受了黑色素瘤的治療,8年後復發,並擴散到他的肝臟和腸道。

然而,儘管預後不佳,他說在接受免疫療法後,他現在已經 "無癌"。

"當我真的生病時,阿米莉亞希望我寫一封信,可以在她的婚禮上讀出來,"他說。

吉尼斯先生也是24歲的西奧的父親,他說他的健康問題始於他注意到腿上的一顆痣在流血的時候。

這位政府IT專家被告知該痣復發的可能性 "非常小",於是他繼續生活。

然而,在2019年,他開始遭受胃痛,掃描顯示癌症已經復發,並且已經擴散。

他接受了切除部分小腸的手術,但三周後,"我的外科醫生告訴我一個非常戲劇性和可怕的消息,我只有八個月的生命。

然後,他被推薦接受免疫療法,並被給予藥物,包括nivolumab和ipilimumab,以幫助他的免疫系統找到並殺死癌細胞。

在成功治療後,吉尼斯先生現在是牛津大學研究黑色素瘤的原因和治療方案的一部分。

吉尼斯先生說。"我認為在英語中沒有任何詞彙可以描述感恩的感覺"。


A father given just eight months to live in 2019 says he feels "like the luckiest man" as he prepares to walk his daughter down the aisle.

Sean Guinness, 60, from Harrogate, was treated for melanoma in 2011 before it came back eight years later, having spread to his liver and intestine.

However, despite the prognosis he said he is now "cancer-free" after undergoing immunotherapy.

"When I was really ill, Amelia wanted me to write a letter that could be read out on her wedding day," he said.

Mr Guinness, also father to Theo, 24, said his health problems began when he noticed a mole on his leg was bleeding.

The government IT specialist was told the chance of it returning was "very small", and he got on with life.

In 2019, however, he began to suffer stomach pains and scans showed the cancer had returned and it had spread.

He underwent surgery to remove part of small intestine but three weeks later "my surgeon told me the very dramatic and scary news that I had eight months to live".

He was then recommended for immunotherapy and given medicines, including nivolumab and ipilimumab, to help his immune system find and kill the cancer cells

Following his successful treatment Mr Guinness is now part of a programme at the University of Oxford looking into the causes and treatment of melanoma.

Mr Guinness said: "I do not think there are any words in the English language that describe the feeling of gratefulness."
