Brave schoolboy who was told he had weeks to live delivers this incredible speech to his classmates (Video)


A schoolboy who was told he had just weeks to live delivered an emotional speech to his classmates at his graduation ceremony.

18 year old Jack Bailey was told that he would die within three weeks if he didn’t have immediate treatment on a rare and aggressive form of cancer.

After learning of his illness a week before the ceremony, Jack – the head boy at Christchurch Boys’ High School in New Zealand – was not expected to attend.

Despite this, he came along and delivered an emotional speech to his peers.

Unsurprisingly, the speech provoked a standing ovation from those in attendance, with some even performing a spontaneous Haka in his honour.

We can’t help but be touched by his incredible bravery.
