Heartbreaking!!! Dad fights Cancer for three weeks to welcome son [Photos]

Everything was perfect for Cagney Wenk and his wife,Jessica. With their son on the way, what could possibly go wrong?

How could they have known that the 26-year-old would be diagnosed with stage four Glioblastoma three weeks to the birth of their son?

The tumour was buried deep in the right lobe of his brain. Cagney survived three brain surgeries to welcome his son even after doctors had given him days to live.

The expectant dad who was receiving treatments in the intensive care unit at Boulder Community Hospital in Colorado, fought tenaciously to see his son.

Cagney was wheeled from the ICU to the delivery room to witness the birth of their son, Levon Robbie Wenk, on September 18 at about 2:12am and even got to cut the umbilical cord when the baby was born.

Despite the fact that the surgery had left Wenk's sight impaired, his emotional reaction to the cries of his son was enough to bring everyone in the room to tears.

A video documentary of the harrowing journey of this little family was made by Sarah Boccolucci Photography and has since gone viral, garnering over 123,000 views in the last few days.
