#StephensStory: Stephen Sutton Discharged From Hospital After 'Remarkable' Recovery

Posted: Updated:

Stephen Sutton, the teen dying of cancer who has raised over £3 million pounds for charity, has been discharged from hospital after a "quite remarkable" recovery.

It's an incredible turnaround in the 19-year-old's condition as just over a week ago he had posted a "final thumbs up" on his Facebook page.

On Friday Stephen announced he would be going home - just hours after being visited by Prime Minister David Cameron.

He also disclosed he may be eligible for a trial drug treatment if he is healthy enough.

He then went on to thank those who had supported him.

Speaking ahead of an event to launch his party's local and European election campaign, Cameron told the Birmingham Mail: "He's amazing, just an inspiration.

"Anyone who watches that video on YouTube just can't help but be impressed by his bravery and courage but also his incredible warmth and passion for life.

"It really is extraordinary."

Cameron added: "He's also got a great sense of humour, a great sense of fun, his bucket list is extraordinary."

Stephen's remarkable story has so far raised £3,175,000 pounds for the Teenage Cancer Trust, the largest single donation the charity has ever received.

The campaign has been boosted by the backing of a number of celebrities including comedian Jason Manford who announced on Sunday he would be holding a special fundraising gig.

Raising the money was number one on his bucket list of 46 wishes including hugging an elephant:

Along the way he has met bands, celebrities and all manner of famous folk:
