 Cancer Survivor Celebrates Fatherís Day After Being Told He Would Never Father Children

A 38-year old cancer survivor, who was told that he will never be able to give birth to children, celebrated his first Father's Day as a dad with his seven-month old son.

Kevin Byrne was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma at the age of four and by the time he was 16 years old, doctors declared that he would never be a biological father.

He was then referred to in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment at Bourn Hall Clinic where the doctors recommended that he should go through procedure called testicular sperm extraction and the operation proved to be a success, with the doctors able to extract a sperm.

The sperm was frozen until Byrne married his partner Natalie and the couple was ready to start a family, with his son Arthur born through a Caesarean section on November 10. "He's a very special little boy. I was concerned my family line would stop with me, but now Arthur is here, he can go on to have a family of his own. Being a parent - something I never thought would happen for me - is simply incredible", Kevin said.
