David Bowie's son married his fiancee the day she was diagnosed with cancer.
'Source Code' director Duncan Jones - whose mother is David's first wife Angie Barnett - revealed he and Rodene Ronquillo, 32, decided to bring forward their wedding plans following the devastating diagnosis on November 7.
He tweeted: 'So I just want to tell you a little story. It may take a few tweets, but I'm hoping you'll forgive me... November was a hell of a month!
'On November 4th, my beautiful fiancÃ© @rodeneronquillo & I were, frisking about in bed, as you do. I am a boob man & found... A lump.
'It was a Sunday, so we had to wait to get an appointment to have the lump biopsied but by Wednesday, we had an answer. Cancer. Stage 2.
'We were a little overwhelmed by the news: cancer & Election Day, so decided to make it a set, ran down to the courthouse & got married! So cancer, election, marriage. All on one day! Two days later, Ro was in surgery (sic).'
Duncan, 41 - who has shaved his head in solidarity with his wife said the surgery went well but encouraged other people to be vigilant about their health.
He said: 'I love my wife more than anyone. She's young as can be. Women are getting breast cancer younger & younger. Women? check yourselves! ..& men?
'Touch up your loved ones. You may save the life of the person you love (sic).'
