A YouTuber who goes by the alias PeeWeeToms has revealed his terminal cancer diagnosis in a video that is at once inspirational and tragic.
The 32-year-old named Dan has been sharing his cancer journey with followers online since a diagnosis in 2015 of a rare type of cancer called a sarcomatoid carcinoma.
Since then, he's created a number of videos offering details on his own experiences with the illness, Q&A sessions and information vlogs, in a bid to raise awareness about various forms of cancer and urge viewers to get checked and be persistent at the doctors if they're suffering from symptoms.
In his most recent posting titled "THE CANCER IS NOW EVERYWHERE", Dan said, "This video is not going to be easy," before revealing, "they can't do surgery, they can't even amputate my arm, or part of my chest, you might notice my voice is going weird as well.
"Life expectancy now is not very long. It's just devastating."
It truly is - from his family members, to his friends, to those who have been routing for him since he started his inspirational YouTube channel and revealed his diagnosis, this news has come as a huge blow. But most importantly, it's a blow for Dan himself.
But being the incredible dude that he is, he even offered some positivity with his message, adding that he won't stop fighting for time.
"I need to really make the most of the time I've got left with the ones that I love," mused Dan, adding, "And I'll still put some f***ing exciting videos out for you."
That's a true hero talking right there.
Anyone who's been following PeeWeeToms' journey up to this point will know that he has fought hard to use his story to raise awareness and save lives from this insidious disease.
As his YouTube channel description reads: "Be your own advocate, always follow things up yourself, persist, make sure they follow up regularly and that you don't hide symptoms. Explain everything even if it seems trivial!
"Don't be scared to get stuff checked, even if it's nothing it's better to be safe than sorry."
It's a truly sad day that someone so brave and caring has been hit with such tragic news. Here's hoping Dan's getting the best care he can and, as he said, here's hoping he can make the most of his time left surrounded by loved ones.
