Man with terminal cancer throws living wake

It’s very rare for someone to throw a party knowing he’s about to die.  But that’s what Darren Glass did this weekend.

The 44-year-old man who has cancer held a living wake to celebrate his life with those who love him.

It is a story that has hit CityNews hard because Darren’s wife, Barb Britton, is Breakfast Television’s senior news director.

Cynthia Mulligan has Darren’s story, told with much love.

UPDATE: On Aug. 22, 2013 Darren passed away — just five days after holding the living wake. His wife Barb was holding his hand at the time and says he did not lose his battle with Cancer but faced the disease with courage, grace and dignity right to the very end.
