Dad lost to cancer
Blenheim man Aaron Biggs died at Hospice Marlborough on Saturday after being diagnosed last month with aggressive colon and liver cancer.
His wife, Melissa Biggs, and daughter Lily, 3, were by his side.
The Biggs family featured in the Saturday Express after Mr Biggs' parents were interviewed to raise awareness of the disease.
They told how 31-year-old Mr Biggs had been told he had two months to live after his diagnosis.
His funeral will be held in Blenheim tomorrow. An appeal fund at BNZ Blenheim would stay open to help support Melissa and Lily.
