(Scroll down for video) A father in the United Kingdom, booked his own funeral after being told that he has two months to live.

However, he survived and used the church for a wedding ceremony together with the love of his life.

Sean McCabe, 31, of Tonyrefail, Wales, is telling people with the disease to “never give up” after he was diagnosed with terminal cancer and was given 2 months to live.

McCabe recently marked two years free of the disease.

McCabe, a father of three children, was told he has two months to live after being diagnosed with stage four Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

McCabe began planning his own funeral, but in a remarkable twist of fate, he was able to cancel the funeral and hold his wedding at the church after he went into remission.

McCabe married his partner of 12 years, Lisa Williams, 31, with his kids by his side. His son Kian, 12, as ringbearer, and daughters Summer, 9, and Asia, 6, as flower girls.

Now, McCabe is trying to make a difference in the life of other people with terminal cancer. He works with Cancer Research UK, which grants wishes to seriously-ill children and their families.

“Don’t worry about things until you have to worry. If you worry about everything then you won’t live your life, and that’s something I have learned,” McCabe aid.
