A 16-year old boy and his autistic younger sister face losing both their parents within weeks of one another.
Louis Maley and his 14-year-old sibling, Ella, are grieving the death of their father, Paul, who died days before he was set to marry Emma Maley.
His life was cut short on March 8 after 18 months of fighting an arteriovenous malformation growth on his brain.
As he battled illness, his fiancee was told in January she had just one month to live after she was diagnosed with breast cancer four years ago.
The couple from Balsall Common, West Midlands, were due to be married on March 19 after 18 years together.
Emma’s cousin, Kate Smith, said: 'Emma is just amazing, through all of this tragedy she still smiles and finds positivity.
'She hates being called an inspiration, but she is. Paul and Emma literally were soul mates.'
Paul was well-known in the area, and used to DJ under the name DJ Hyper at Premonition nightclub in Birmingham.
'He just adored her and she adores him. Despite all the tragedy in the past couple of years they still laughed together.'
