The cancer girl who married her long time boyfriend!
Every girl does have a dream of marriage and this pretty girl with cancer was no exception. The dream however turned into more special moment when she lived her dream before she could no more live!
Katie Kirkpatrick of Michigan was a valedictorian in the Lapeer East high school and also a homecoming queen. Her boyfriend was a deputy at the Lapeer County Sheriff’s department.
The two had been into love for years and surely did have dreams of marrying each other and living a life of complete happiness.
But fate had something else in mind. Katie was diagnosed with cancerous tumor in the brain to which the treatments were on since a quite while now.
She had gone under a surgery to remove it to which the cancer recurred and this time spread to the lungs too.
Katie could sense her end coming and therefore her wishes to live before she died recuperated.
She proposed her boyfriend Nick and he immediately said a ‘Yes’ even after knowing that she wouldn’t make it for long!
The wedding preparations were quite detailing by Katie and her wedding gown went through multiple fittings because of her deteriorating health.
Before the wedding day, Katie spent the entire day in bed because she was in deep pain and had to be checked on with the right medicines and morphine.
All this was gone on her wedding day when Katie wanted to look her best for her wedding.
She put on her Cinderella gown, took off her portable oxygen support and also removed the nasal cannula which helped her breathe. Katie walked the aisle in her white gown and gazed at everyone with her blue eyes while she made everyone aww at her appearance!
She married the love of her life in perfect health and style but could not survive more than 5 days after that. The couple lived 5 days of married life until Katie couldn’t take the pain anymore and left for the heavens!
