A young man given just 6 months to live spent his dying days making his girlfriend happy - starting with marrying her.

In April 2013, Chris Price, was given the devastating news that his cancer, which he had beaten the year before, had returned - and this time it was terminal.

'If my love could have saved him, he would have lived forever,'

Proposing to long-term girlfriend Ceri, 29, shortly after, the pair were wed in front of friends and family in August.

He then took his new wife and her four children to Dineyland Paris, before whisking Ceri away for a romantic weekend in New York.

Speaking of her husband, who died last month in her arms, Ceri said: 'It was as if Chris wanted to spend his last days making me as happy as he could.'

'He was so positive that he never talked about dying, he just wanted to see me and the children happy.'

'We had the most magical time and I will savour those memories forever.'

Chris was diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus in April 2012 and was given the all clear, but a later scan revealed the cancer had spread to his liver and lungs.

'If my love could have saved him, he would have lived forever,' Ceri said.

'We packed so much into the short time we had together.'

'My heart is broken losing him and I still spray his Aramis aftershave and wear his clothes to feel close to him.'

'All he ever did was show everyone he met love. I miss him every moment of every day.'
