'The fight isn't over': Golfer turned popular radio host receives earth-shattering news just weeks after he was told he'd beaten stage four cancer
Popular Melbourne radio presenter Mark Allen was told he'd overcome stage four cancer earlier this year after getting a quarter of his lung and more than two-thirds of his rectum removed.

Major winner Hannah Green and defending champion and world No.3 golfer Nelly Korda will lead a hot field at next year's Women's Australian Open in Adelaide.
The women will tee it up at Royal Adelaide from February 13, with Australia's top ranked golfer, world No.7 Minjee Lee, also among the favourites.
Perth's Green is making a triumphant return home, looking to add the national title to the LPGA Championship.
The 22-year-old stunned the golfing world in June when she led from start to finish to claim one of the five women's majors, at Hazeltine in Minnesota.
Her one-shot victory was the first major by an Australian woman since Karrie Webb's 2006 win at the Kraft Nabisco Championship. It also made her only the third Australian female to win a major behind Webb and Jan Stephenson.
Aussies Lee, Oh shine in Taiwan LPGA event
Australian golfers Minjee Lee and Su Oh have made strong starts to the LPGA event in Taiwan.In the event she finished a close second in last year, world No.9 Lee fired a five-under 67 to trail co-leaders Mi Jung Hur and Nelly Korda - who earned her first US LPGA Tour victory here last year.
Playing only her second season on tour, Green also won another LPGA Tour tournament, the Cambia Portland Classic, in August, to underline her superstar potential.
But she still desperately wants a win on home soil.
"It's always been a dream of mine to win my home Open,'' said Green, who is currently ranked No. 21 in the world.
"That's why I'm so happy to be coming back to Royal Adelaide in 2020."
Green has come close before. In four previous starts beginning as a teenaged amateur in 2016, she has finished tied-20th, tied-seventh, third at Kooyonga in 2018 and tied-10th at The Grange this year.
"Winning a major has changed my life a bit but I'm very hungry to keep competing and winning and to get the best out of myself and I don't need any extra motivation at an event like a home open," she said.
American Korda, 21, repeated the feat of her elder sister Jessica by winning the 2019 Open and has continued to climb the world rankings to No. 3.
Lee, 23, scaled the heights to a No. 2 ranking when she won her fifth Tour title with victory in Los Angeles early in 2019 before dropping down a few places later in the year.
