Christmas has always been a special time for the Spencers. Former RAF serviceman Kevin Spencer proposed to his wife Emma on Christmas Day 18 years ago. They now have two children, Sophie aged seven and Ellis, six.
Then, five years ago, Kevin received the devastating news he had an inoperable brain tumour. Worse was to come on the day that would have marked his 20 years' service. Kevin suffered a massive stroke, leaving him completely paralysed. He's since lost his sight and ability to talk. Sadly, Kevin's been told he's unlikely to survive another year.
Watch Emma tell their story.
