25-year-old Stuart Hutchinson was diagnosed with Brain Cancer 8 years ago, and since that day, Nero, his loyal French bulldog, has been by his side and has helped him fight.
But unfortunately, Stuart lost his 8-year fight with cancer on August 11, 2019, and just after 15 minutes, Nero passed away too.
In 2011, Stuart was diagnosed with brain cancer, he underwent surgery and did chemotherapy to kill the cancer cells. But cancer spread out and reached his bones, another aggressive tumor was found.
25-year-old Stuart got married earlier this year to 22-year-old Danielle.
The couple has 3 dogs in total, Nero, 4-year-old Nala, and Amelia, the pooch of Nero and Nala.
During an interview, 52-year-old Fiona Conaghan, the mother of Stuart, said, “Stuart died about 1.15pm that day, and Nero died roughly 15 minutes later. He had three dogs, but him and Nero were like one man and his dog. Nero was the dog which was always with him. Danielle was heartbroken to have lost both of them, but she has been so strong.”
She added, “We got Stuart home four weeks ago – he wanted to die at home because that’s where he was born. We cared for him at home. We expected it but it is still tough. It is still a shock and traumatic when it finally comes.”
Danielle and Stuart started to date 6 years ago.
The two got engaged in 2017 and got married in January this year.
The two lived in Alloa, Clackmannanshire in Scotland.
But last month, Stuart decided to spend some time with his mother.
Fiona took care of Stuart when her son decided to live with her.
Fiona said, “Danielle had been staying at ours with Stuart and woke up one morning and realised her glasses were broken. Her dad said he would go and get another pair from her and Stuart’s house to save her leaving him as we knew he didn’t have long left.”
She added, “When he got there, he realised the dog had taken unwell and took him to the emergency vets. They said he had ruptured something in his spine but he had been totally fine before that.”
25-year-old Stuart was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2011 and relapsed in 2014 and again in last year.
Fiona, the mother of Stuart, said everyone was going well at first but it was earlier this year when they found out that the cancer of Stuart had spread out.
She said, “But then by June it started to affect his whole arm. That’s when they did a scan and saw the cancer had taken over his whole brain and had spread to his bones and his pelvis.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Stuart. May you rest in peace.
