Doctors have never known anyone to be cured from the relapse I have.”I was told I could either go home and receive palliative care and I could be dead within weeks, or try the option of intensive chemotherapy to give me a second chance of remission.”However, there’s a 10 per risk of dying because the chemotherapy is so intense and there’s a 10 per cent risk that my bone marrow will never recover.

I owe it to my three children to prolong things for longer if nothing else. Hopefully I will go back into remission again.”Being told what I have is not the easiest thing to take in and I’ve had to have some horrible conversations.”My children know I’m ill again and I’m back in hospital but that’s the extent they have been told.”Mr Strawson has been told if his current treatment doesn’t work he may only have a few weeks left to live.He added: “The chance of it working for my blood cancer AML, especially after relapse, are next to nothing.”No further treatment will be recommended because of the short amount of time from transplant to the relapse.”I have three young children so this prognosis is unacceptable. I am not ready to just roll over and die. I owe it to my children and my family to exhaust every avenue.” And he has released this moving image of him embracing his son George who cuddles up with him after his latest round of chemotherapy at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.Mr Strawson, who lives near Crediton, Devon, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) on his 33rd birthday last year on July 21.Following months of unsuccessful treatments, including a stem cell transplant at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth, his last option is a course of intensive chemotherapy at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital.Recovery at his stage of the disease is so low that he has not been given odds to indicate what chance there is of it working.And even if he does show signs of improvement, he has been warned he could remain in hospital for the next six months while his body recovers. Mr Strawson is appealing for people to come forward with suggestions of physical, mental, medical or holistic care, as well as information about any new drug treatments, especially those aimed at relapsed AML patients.He has asked anyone who can help to contact him on email at [email protected] This heartbreaking photo shows a cancer-stricken young father with just weeks left to live cradling his son on his hospital bed.Brave dad-of-three Jon Strawson, 33, has advanced blood cancer and has been told by doctors there is nothing left they can do for him.But he is refusing to “roll over and die” and has issued a last ditch plea for anyone to get in touch to offer him help or advice.Mr Strawson said he won’t give up for the sake of his family – Freya, seven, George, six, and Henry, four, and wife Rachel, 30.
