Bailey was due to give a speech at a big awards ceremony on Wednesday, but found out last week he had an aggressive form of cancer and would die if he did not receive treatment within three weeks.

"I wrote a speech, and a week before I was due to deliver this speech tonight they said, 'You've got cancer,'" he told the crowd.

"They said, if you don't get any treatment within the next three weeks you're going to die. Then they told me I wouldn't be here tonight to deliver that speech."
