Love, laughter, and happy tears should be present throughout the wedding day. These standards apply to the tens of thousands of marriages daily. Sadly, David and Heather Mosher’s marriage was anything from typical.
When Heather and David first met in 2015, they experienced “love at first sight.” The pair met while taking a dance class and realized from away that they were meant to be.
Dave proposed to Heather on December 23, 2016, by getting down on one knee. He did so as the two rode in a horse-drawn carriage in the calm ambiance of the street lights.
Although the happy news for the pair would soon be eclipsed, Heather happily replied yes.
Heather told David that she had a lump in her breast that had the potential to be malignant on the day they got engaged.
Five days later, she received the terrible news that she had an uncommonly aggressive form of breast cancer with a poor prognosis.
The pair initially intended to marry on December 30, 2017, but they quickly realized they would have to move the date forward due to the cancer’s quick progression.
The presence of metastases, or daughter tumors, frequently dictates how serious a patient’s cancer is. The scenario in Heather’s case quickly deteriorated.
But it was finally time on December 22, over a year after Dave had popped the question. A stunning wedding took place while Heather was in the hospital, surrounded by family and friends.
