Dying British teenager raises over 3 million euros for cancer charity

Just 19 and terminally ill, Stephen Sutton has raised over 3 million euros for teenage cancer care, smashing all records on a fundraising website.

He inspired Britain, telling his story on social media and making a list of things he hopes to do before dying.

Stephen was diagnosed with bowel cancer at the age of 15. Despite surgery, the cancer spread and doctors told the teenager from central England that it was incurable.

The money he has raised will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust charity, to help other young people suffering from the disease.
