Aaron Purmort discovered he had a terminal brain tumor soon after he met his wife, Nora McInerny. Since the diagnosis, they have been sharing details of their struggle with the world through their blog myhusbandstumor.com.

And before he died, the couple decided to co-write his humorous and touching obituary, which was published over the weekend in the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

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 years long battle with a nefarious criminal named Cancer, who has plagued our society for far too long.

"I've never laughed and cried more in one sitting, but I'm so glad we got to do this," Nora wrote on the blog.

The end of the obit also states that he is survived by his "first wife Gwen Stefani," which Nora tweeted about following his death.

The family set up a crowdfunding page to raise money for medical costs and to help support his wife and child.

This is what happens when you leave your dad alone out in the woods with way too much time on his hands.

But it does look kinda fun.

You may not know it yet, but Jake Murray is your hero.

In this glorious '80s-style movie montage, 27-year-old Murray demonstrates his skateboarding skills, dancing skills, climbing skills and jumping skills, all while wearing a pair of fashionable, white skinny jeans.

So how do we make sure this guy gets on the show? Let's make it happen!

How the treatment worked:

1) One of the patient's two olfactory bulbs was removed and the olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) were grown in culture

2) 100 micro injections of OECs were made above and below the damaged area of the spinal cord

3) Four strips of nerve tissue were placed across an 8mm gap in the spinal cord. The scientists believe the OECs acted as a pathway to stimulate the spinal cord cells to regenerate, using the nerve grafts as a bridge to cross the severed cord

Darek Fidyka, who was paralysed from the chest down in a knife attack in 2010, can now walk using a frame.

The treatment, a world first, was carried out by surgeons in Poland in collaboration with scientists in London.

Details of the research are published in the journal Cell Transplantation.
