21-year-old With Months to Live Checks Off Bucket List Items After Cancer Diagnosis

An Australian man who has been diagnosed with cancer and given months to live has been living life to its fullest, by ticking items off of his bucket list including proposing to the love of his life.

Kienan Moore, 21, from Queensland, was diagnosed with cancer last year after finding a lump behind his knee.

According to a GoFundMe donation page set up for Moore, he first noticed the lump after struggling to climb a ladder at his work as an electrical apprentice.

The pain eventually drove Moore to see a doctor. After being referred to a hospital, Moore was diagnosed with cancer behind his knee. After surgery, Moore was able to live his life again but the cancer soon returned and spread to his lungs, brain, spine and leg.

"There is no cure, no fix," according to an update on the GoFundMe page dated December 11. "Unfortunately it saddens me to let everyone know Kienan has been given 3 to 6 months to live."

Faced with his situation, Moore has decided to do as much as he can with the time he's got left.

With that in mind, he's put together a bucket list of 60 items he wants to do with his remaining time, and his family has been "overwhelmed" with the support, donations and well wishes from people so far, the GoFundMe update reads.

Moore has already started ticking off a few of the items. According to Australia's 9News, over the weekend he set off to a car racing track where he experienced an adrenaline-filled drifting event.

He then met racing driver Todd Hazlewood, who talked to Moore and gave him some racing equipment.

Moore told 9News he was lost for words at the event and couldn't stop smiling. He said that his advice to others is to get regular health checks and not take days for granted.

A couple of days prior, Moore proposed to his girlfriend, and in the coming months he plans to see the Great Barrier Reef, get matching tattoos with his friends, swim with dolphins and spend time with his loved ones.

Updates will be available on the GoFundMe site, and anyone with discount vouchers or who can offer a service can get in touch with the organizers. Donations can also be made to help "make Kienan's bucket list a reality."

As of Monday morning ET the fundraiser for Moore had gained a little over $41,640 Australian dollars of a $50,000 goal.
