You can’t help but shed a tear at this tragic story.

Paul Brame of Chelmsford in England lost the fight against an aggressive form of liver cancer on Saturday, just a month after marrying his beloved, Niah Phillips-Brame.

What should have been the happiest time for the couple turned into a tragic reality when she lost her husband to cancer this past weekend.

In March 35-year-old Paul was diagnosed with terminal, inoperable liver cancer.

Paul and Niah (26) started a crowd-funding page in early October in the hopes of raising the £20,000 (about R360 000) for Paul’s treatment.

People around the world generously opened the purses to help the couple in their fight with cancer. But their efforts were sadly in vain. Although a total of £27,000 (about R486 000) had been raised, it was too late for Paul.

His passing came just days before he was to start a different type of treatment for the illness.

In a heart-breaking tribute on Facebook Niah described her husband’s fighting spirit.

“On Saturday 14th October at 8.20pm the love of my life took his last breath which ended his pain and suffering.

“My husband fought hard to defeat the odds and right up until the end he was still fighting.”

According to Niah’s post the cancer not only spread but Paul had also developed pneumonia and possibly sepsis.

“I made our lives public for a purpose and to save Paul and although it was amazing and successful he simply couldn’t suffer any more.

“He has left a gigantic hole in both our families’ lives and I have a hole in my heart. He was the greatest son, brother, husband and future father there ever was.”
