MANHATTAN BEACH - A 25-year-old hospice patient married his partner of five years last week in Manhattan Beach.

Chris Robinson was diagnosed last year with renal cell carcinoma, the most common type of kidney cancer in adults.

Doctors say Robinson may only have weeks left to live, but Robinson says he doesn't believe it. "I believe in heaven. I believe in God and I don't believe I'm going to die from this cancer," he says.

Last week, Robinson tied the knot with his partner Terry at MJHS Hospice. Their friend made a wedding video that shows the happy couple and their beloved 2-year-old son CJ.

Robinson says that ever since his wedding, he has had a new sense of faith and hope. He says although he is in the hospice, he feels that he is getting stronger every day.
