Well, here’s a feel good story for your Sunday.

A groom who was told he only had “weeks to live” dropped a goddamn beautiful bombshell on his wedding guests… he’s not dying after all.

Jack Kane, from Middlesbrough in the UK, was told he had a tumour on his spine after his health quickly deteriorated earlier this year.

When Kane woke up one morning he found he couldn't move his body at all, after experiencing intense back pain, pins and needles and hypersensitivity in his legs.

The 23-year-old was told he had terminal cancer and he only had weeks to live.

But in a twist that feels like it's been ripped from the script of romantic comedy, the doctors later admitted they had made a mistake.

Instead of terminal cancer, Kane has a condition called neuromyelitis optica NMO, also known as Devic’s disease.

The condition causes inflammation of the spine and optic nerve.

Not long after finding out that he was terminal (when he wasn't) Kane asked the nurse to lift him out of the wheelchair and put him on one knee so he could propose to his girlfriend Emma.

Eight days later they were married at the hospital's chapel. At the wedding reception, Kane told his family and friends the good news.

“As long as I live I will never forget the atmosphere in the room when Jack said ‘I’m not terminal’," Emma told The Sun.

“You could hear a pin drop. Everyone looked like they were taking seconds to register what was going on then the room erupted into cheers and crying.”

Kane is still being treated in hospital but he's looking forward to his future with his new wife.

“My legs may never come back but there are people worse off than me. I won’t be beaten by something I can’t see," he told The Sun.

“The staff on ward 27 have also been truly amazing right from the beginning — if you’ve a question to ask or if you just need someone there to put a hand on your shoulder, they are there for you. We class them as family.”

Ah, so sweet. We bet there wasn't a dry eye in the house.
