Happy times: Blenheim couple Aaron and Melissa Biggs with daughter Lily, aged 2, had everything to look forward to when this photo was taken in 2011. The family’s future changed last month when Aaron learned he had liver and bowel cancer and had just two months left to live.

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.
