In Connecticut, a woman who had been fighting breast cancer for a year, died shortly after getting married.
Part of her last words were here wedding vows. Heather Mosher, a young woman with breast cancer, was married on Dec. 22, 18 hours before she died, as reported in an ABC News.
Earned her wings! One of my dearest friends got married this past Friday, December 22nd, to the man of her dreams. She had been battling stage 4 cancer and it had spread all throughout her body, but she was determined to marry her soul mate. Less than 24 hours later her spirit flew from her body and ascended to be with God. I am in awe of the strength Dave's love inspired in Heather even in her last hours. She was his great love and he was hers. Heather, I miss and love you more than I can say. Thank you for sharing this life's journey with me. ❤️
The wedding was planned for a long time. The diagnosis fell on the day her proposal. “I had planned to ask her on December 23, 2016,” said Dave Mosher, her husband. “That morning, we had a doctor’s appointment after finding a lump on her chest,” he says.
“She held out for the wedding”
For a year, the lovers prepared the event while facing operations and two chemotherapies. Shortly before the end of the year, the doctors advised the couple to advance the wedding date, initially scheduled for December 30th.
Standing in front of everyone in the chapel, I was hesitant to pull out my camera. As someone who wanted nothing more than to see my friend truly happy, I felt I had to capture these images, which by this point I knew were her final moments with us. What you clearly see here is two people who were destined to be joined as one. A love like no other captured for all to see. My gift to her.
They were married on December 22 at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut, surrounded by family and friends. Lying in a hospital bed, Heather Mosher wore a wig and a wedding dress.
“She was dying, we were all there for those last moments,” one of the bride’s bridesmaids told ABC News. “She held out for the wedding … a wedding with the man of her dreams.”
Heather Mosher was buried on December 30th, the day the couple originally planned to get married.
