A dying teenage cancer sufferer has posted a heart-breaking Facebook message just as his fundraising campaign passed the £1 million mark.
Stephen Sutton, 19, has been battling colorectal for three years and gave a 'final thumbs up' yesterday morning.
Stephen had originally intended to raise £10,000 for charity but this target was quickly smashed after he gained the support of celebrities such as Piers Morgan and Jason Manford.
The total raised so far on his JustGiving page currently stands at £1,090,924 and will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust.
And Manford doesn't want to stop there...
Let's not stop now! That 2 million make is in easy reach! Stephen gave us his 'sat thumbs up' lets give him one back pic.twitter.com/kTlkstMzqy

Raising the money was number one on his bucket list of 46 wishes including hugging an elephant:
Crowd-surfing in a rubber dinghy:
Along the way he has met bands, celebrities and all manner of famous folk:
He even got to read the news... sort of.
Truly inspirational stuff.
