Woman with terminal cancer marries the love of her life hours before dying


post-title

Heather and David Mosher met in a class of swing in May of 2015 and they started a beautiful relationship. A year later, on December 23, 2016, David planned to propose to his girlfriend, but that same day they received the worst news

Heather was diagnosed with end-stage breast cancer. However, this did not stop her boyfriend from asking for a marriage, because he wanted to be by her side all the time and to show her that she would not be alone during this painful process.

A bad move of fate

The date for the ceremony was December 30, 2017, but due to the rapid progress of the disease -even with the surgeries and chemotherapy to which it was subjected- her condition worsened and she had to receive assisted ventilation; the doctors asked that they hurry the last details so that they could perform the ceremony.



Finally he said yes!

The couple decided to marry Dec. 23 at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut, where, in front of friends and family, the couple received the blessing. A few hours later, Heather, 31, died, but before she had the opportunity to achieve her greatest dream.

A dream come true

I knew it was going to be the last time we were going to be together in a romantic way. She reminded me of someone who crossed the final goal of a marathon. That's how decided it was always.



A woman worthy of admiration

Christina Lee, who was Heather's maid of honor, took charge of taking some images to share through social networks the story of the struggle and surrender of her beloved friend.

He said goodbye full of happiness

His last words were his vows. She was fighting a level 4 cancer that had spread throughout her body, but she was determined to marry her soul mate. Less than 24 hours later his spirit flew.
