    The Wedding: A Touching Cancer Story


    "Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity." – Henry Van Dyke quotes

    Her name is Katie Kirkpatrick, 21 yrs old. Next to her is her fiancée, Nick, 23. This picture was taken prior to their wedding January 11th, 2005 . Katie has terminal cancer and spends hours in chemotherapy. Here Nick awaits while she finishes one of the sessions..

    Even in pain and dealing with her organs shutting down, with the help of morphine, Katie took care of every single wedding planning. Her dress had to be adjusted several times due to Katie's constant weight loss.

    An expected guest was her oxygen tank. Katie had to use it during the ceremony and reception. The other couple in this picture are Nick's parents, very emotional with the wedding and of course to see their son marrying the girl he fell in love when he was an adolescent.

    In the middle of the party Katie had to rest for a bit and catch her breath. The pain doesn't allow her to stand for long period of time.

    Katie died 5 days after her wedding. To see a fragile woman dress as bride with a beautiful smile makes you think… happiness is always there within reach, no matter how long it lasts…..lets enjoy life and don't live a complicated life. Life is too short.

    "Work as if it was your first day, forgive as soon as possible, love without boundaries, laugh without control, and never stop smiling even if you don't know the reason."​

    This story was really sad... but the best part is she was strong and inspired her kids and the man was really supportive

    I hope the man is still taking a good care of the children and relatives
