In 2006, Aaron met Nora. She doesn't remember this. In 2010, Aaron and Nora met again and fell in love, fast and hard. Less than a year later, Aaron, aged 32, was diagnosed with a brain tumour in his frontal lobe. They immediately decided to get married. After three years of not just being alive but living life to its fullest, the couple wrote Aaron's obituary together. It begins, 'Purmort, Aaron Joseph, age 35, died peacefully at home on November 25 after complications from a radioactive spider bite that led to years of crime-fighting and a year-long battle with a nefarious criminal called Cancer, who has plagued our society for too long'. Aaron's obituary spread to every corner of the internet. Here, Nora takes readers on her journey with Aaron, describing how she discovered that even the darkest of times can reveal the very best in us and the very best in others.
