Journalist Dean Eastmond has been documenting his fight with terminal cancer on Twitter, and recently shared the heartbreaking news that he has weeks to live.
Found out this week that I'm fighting for weeks of life instead of the years I wanted & can feel this cancer completely taking over me now 😔 pic.twitter.com/J0Ta09Uf2h

He previously shared that his top bucket list wish would be to have his face done up by the queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
If this turns into me writing a bucket list, you just know me being painted by every RPDR girl will be at the very top of that list 💄

It turns out, someone out there who fit the bill heard the call and answered.
Charlie Hides, a contestant from the ninth season, replied to the tweet, offering to meet up with Eastmond.
You're an inspiration to me Dean! I'd love to paint your face. I'm in the UK for the next ten days.

And slay he does.
