The cancer was diagnosed during a routine check-up just before Christmas and Dickinson has just completed a seven-week course of chemotherapy and radiology. 
Paddy nursed him back to health in their home in Chiswick, West London, while he had nine weeks of chemotherapy and 33 sessions of radiation.
He was also supported by their children Austin, 29, Griffin, 27, and daughter Kia, 28 – and after six months Bruce got the all-clear.
He later wrote about his cancer battle in his 2017 autobiography, 'What Does This Button Do?'

Bruce told Rolling Stone magazine how surviving cancer changed his outlook on life – saying: 'Living is living now, every minute, every second, for right now.'
But the couple's marriage has since fallen apart, and while there are no immediate plans for a divorce, a legal separation would lead to Bruce cutting up his £90million fortune.
Dickinson previously told BBC Radio 2 that he has tried to keep his family life largely out of public view.
'There's no need for it, really,' he said. 'And I think there's a belief that that nastiness somehow sells books. And I'm not sure one, that it does, and two, that it's particularly the sort of book that I want to be a part of.
'So I made the decision that, in amongst not being horrid to people, 'cause there's no point, at the same time, I thought, well, I also don't want to tell confidences about other people's lives.'    
The singer remains active touring with the band who have penned hits including Run To The Hills and Can I Play With Madness, and even flies them to show on their Boeing 757, named 'Ed Force One'.
He also chairs an aviation firm in the Vale of Glamorgan that is set to receive millions of pounds in new investment.

Caerdav, formerly known as Cardiff Aviation has signed an agreement with the Dubai-based MOBH Group, which it said will see money pumped into developing new pilot and cabin crew training and maintenance facilities.
Dickinson - who quit the band in 1993 only to re-join in 1999 - is known and loved for his on-stage energy and wide vocal range. 
In 2014 he said he had boycotted Glastonbury for being 'too bourgeois'. 
'Personally I have no interest in going to Glastonbury,' he said. 'In the days when Glasto was an alternative festival it was quite interesting, but anywhere Gwyneth Paltrow goes and you can live in an air-conditioned yurt is not for me.'
Iron Maiden were formed in Leyton, east London, in 1975 and have sold 80 million albums and won multiple awards, making them one of the most successful heavy metal bands of all time.
