A radio documentary focusing on a couple married for 27 years has gone viral after the story of their love made it to online video platforms.

The documentary, which originally featured just the voices of the couple, was paired with an animation and posted online almost two years ago. As recently as last week, the video went viral and was shared by news organisations all over the world.

The six-minute short details the love story of Danny and Annie Perasa following Danny's diagnosis with terminal cancer. The couple had been married for over 27 years.

The couple recount their romance from the early days and finish with some thoughts on the future now that Danny is expected to lose his battle to cancer.

The documentary crew returned to the couples home some time later for a heartbreaking update.

The animation has gotten over 3m views online. Watch above and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
