David Bowie’s son Duncan Jones has been married. The English musician’s filmmakers son had secretly exchanged his vows along with his longtime girlfriend last month November, 6 2012. They wed following the news that Rodene Ronquillo had cancer.
Revealing the news in a series of posts on Twitter.com, the filmmaker writes,
“On November 4th, my beautiful fiance @rodeneronquillo & I were, frisking about in bed, as you do. I am a boob man & found… A lump. It was a Sunday, so we had to wait to get an appointment to have the lump biopsied but by Wednesday, we had an answer. Cancer. Stage 2.
“We were a little overwhelmed by the news: cancer & Election Day, so decided to make it a set, ran down to the courthouse & got married! So cancer, election, marriage. All on one day! Two days later, Ro was in surgery. Lots has happened between nov 6 and now.”
Jones does reveal that she is starting to blog about her cancer battle, and is urging all young women to get tested for the disease – immediately.
”I love my wife more than anyone. She’s young as can be. Women are getting breast cancer younger & younger. Women? check yourselves! ..& men? Touch up your loved ones. You may save the life of the person you love.”
The thirty two year old is starting chemotherapy on Tuesday, December 11, 2012. Jones has already given his support to his new wife by shaving his head.
The couple became engaged in June, 2012.
