Terminally ill mom has 'fairytale wedding' before being too ill to marry the love of her life
A young mother, who has only a few months to live, has wanted to marry the love of her life before she’s gone. Kaylea wanted to carry the same name as her children so that after their departure, they can be sure that she was "part of his life".
As noted by Liverpool Echo, there was no one holding back the tears when Kaylea Callacher walked down the aisle of the church to meet at the altar with her partner Mark McCole.
The mother of two looked stunning in her wedding dress when she arrived at the Church of the Blessed Sacrament, Walton, with her father Chris.
Father Ged Callacher, a cousin of the bride, was the one who officiated the religious ceremony, making everyone laugh during the service. The girlfriend claimed that he gave a very optimistic sermon since she and her partner did not want any hint of sadness on their big day.
Kaylea and Mark, who have been together for 13 years, have two children, Kian and Aoife, who participated in the ceremony as a flower girl and page, respectively.
When the newlyweds emerged from the church, the Liverpool JMU Gospel Choir was waiting for them singing a moving version of Stand By Me.
The couple's wedding banquet and evening reception were held at the Gladstone Island Conservatory. The couple finally left at 11.30pm, after enjoying some dancing and posing for hundreds of photos.
Kaylea commented that her now-husband told her that this was the wedding he would have liked to give her before, but it was never possible because they did not have the money to cover the expenses.
The couple stayed at the Shankly Hotel, where they had been given a room for the weekend. Kaylea said: "It was the end of a really magical fairy tale."
The 31-year-old from Orrell Park was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer in January, and last month she received the heartbreaking news that her condition is terminal. Kaylea reported that her last wish was to get married, in order to die with the same name as her children.
She explained: "I want them to realize that I was part of their life, even when I am no longer around." When their family and friends heard that, they came together to make their dreams come true.
Another story of consummate love after a diagnosis of terminal cancer is that lived by a man of 60 years and his lost love, who after 20 years of separation, managed to meet thanks to Facebook.
As reported by the Daily Mail, Ken Boyer, diagnosed with terminal cancer, received a Facebook message from Michelle 'Shelly' Kimbrel earlier this year.
The couple met 20 years ago in Missouri, where he owned a bar and she still lives, but they lost track and led separate lives, without exchanging a word until Ken, who had moved to Palm Bay, Florida, appeared on Shelly's list of possible acquaintances.
The boyfriend did not reveal what kind of cancer he is suffering or the time he has left. Unfortunately, all love stories do not have a happy ending, but days full of magic.
So it was for Dustin Snyder and Sierra Siverio, the young high school students had the good fortune to meet and fall in love with each other.
Despite the young age of these boys, they had to face a situation that not even the most mature pass gracefully: His love was put to the test with cancer when Dustin was diagnosed with a strange form of carcinoma when he turned 18 years old.
