• The Briton thought he was dying and married, but the diagnosis was wrong
When Jack Kane began to suffer from back pain, doctors said he had an incurable tumor. The guy decided that he had no more time to procrastinate, so I made your girlfriend. But it became clear that the diagnosis was wrong.
In August, 23-year-old Jack went to the doctor complaining of pain in his back and legs, he was hospitalized. MRI showed that he had a tumor in the upper spine. Jack was diagnosed with terminal cancer and was told that he left to live just a few weeks. Learning about the disappointing diagnosis, Jack immediately decided to make a proposal to his girlfriend Emma.
"We were ready to say goodbye to each other and come to terms with the fact that Jack will not soon. We have long come to the conclusion that we want to live life together. When we found out that he was only a few weeks, it was just awful. We used to think to get married, but in the future. But when we were told that Jack dies, we just decided to do it, "- said Emma.
Just eight days later, doctors said they made a mistake in the diagnosis and Jack suffers from a rare disease - disease Devic. However, this disease can lead to the fact that man is paralyzed and lost his sight over time. "It took me a long time to digest the news that I'm not dying. After all, I was preparing for the worst. Only a few days later I was able to fully realize it. I told this to his family before the wedding, and the other guests - during the ceremony. The room just exploded when I made an announcement, "- says Jack.
Jack was afraid to jinx it, so before the wedding, no one said anything. He waited until the big day. He first told the good news to close relatives during an official ceremony at the James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough. And then in the presence of 130 guests at the restaurant said that it is not terminally ill. "For a moment, you could hear a fly flying. And then all cheered, wept and began to congratulate us. I will never forget that moment, "- Jack said.
Now Jack will have treatment, but he is optimistic about the future.
"I suffer from a rare disease, about which little is known. I have a long way to go before I can start a new life. But a few months in a hospital in any comparison does not go with a fatal prognosis ", - said Jack.
