Peter Fleming, 79 was first diagnosed with breast cancer - a disease that rarely affects men - in 2005. The retired civil servant was given the all-clear by doctors last year.

But sadly, within a year, he was told the disease had returned and doctors said this time his condition is incurable.

Fleming was diagnosed with breast cancer while training for the London Marathon seven years ago. He was put on daily medication to get rid of the cancer.

The treatment appeared to have worked and he was told he was cancer-free in March last year. But 12 months later at his check-up, he was given the devastating news that the disease had returned, according to the Mail.

Fleming is now undergoing treatment at The Christie in Withington to try and prolong his life.
