Man dying of cancer makes hilarious, touching video set to 'Eye Of The Tiger'

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Jul 11, 2014

Darren Mullery of Ireland has pancreatic cancer, and he is not going down without a fight.

According to the Parent Dish, Mullery discovered he was sick last August. His wife Danielle was four months pregnant at the time.

Mullery was told that his cancer was so far advanced, there was little to be done. He decided not to settle for that. He received chemotherapy treatment and is now determined to be around for his 40th birthday in August and his daughter's first birthday in December.

He also decided to make a video set to the song "Eye of the Tiger" from the movie "Rocky" to inspire others who are having a hard time, and to show that it is important to keep fighting even when it's hard. The video is titled "Fighting Cancer Darren's Way."

He also made the video for his daughter to see when she is older so that she will know how brave he was during his fight and how hard he fought against the disease.

The video starts by showing the fighter in a hospital bed and "rising up back on my feet."

Mullery then heads to the gym and boxing ring where he fights cancer.

The video features his friends and family, and was made with the assistance of the Tralee Musical Society, which Mullery has been a member of since 1999.

The video is both hilarious and touching. It will be hard not to smile and cry at the same time.
