They also shared a link to a fundraiser that has been set up by his family in his memory to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The JustGiving fundraiser set up in his honour includes a message from his partner Louise Troyano, which reads: ‘Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure, you are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure.’

It also includes a message from Luis, thanking all those who took care of him during his cancer treatment.

‘A special thankyou to Macmillan Cancer Support, East Cheshire Hospice and the NHS including Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and Stockport NHS Foundation Trust for trying to save my life and their tireless work to try and eliminate cancer,’ he said.

‘But more importantly a massive thank you to all the amazing professionals who really did try their absolute best for me, showed me absolute compassion and gave me more time than what was seemingly possible. I thank you sincerely.’
