Woman with cancer gets married hours before death

Woman with cancer gets married hours before death

Heather Mosher, from CT, married her husband, David Mosher a few days before Christmas, after the couple brought the wedding forward out of fears Heather wouldn't make it to their planned ceremony on 30 December.

"It reminds me of someone who is crossing the finish line of a marathon or something."

'Nobody thought she would've made it that far. "The way we would talk about it, you always kind of felt this isn't it". The 31-year-old died the next day.

Later that December night, David Mosher went through with the proposal.

By September 2017 the cancer was in her brain and two months later, she was being kept alive by a breathing tube.

As per a report by The Daily News, the wedding took place in the chapel of the St. Francis Hospital, Connecticut, with the couple surrounded by their friends and family.

That morning, the pair went to the doctor and Lindsay was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer that had already spread to her lymph nodes.

On the day planned for the wedding, December 30, the family held Heather's funeral.

And while it wasn't expected for Heather to make it past October, her fighting spirit had other ideas.

David Mosher said some of his wife's final words were her vows. The vows were hard for Karas to document, but the bridesmaid took her camera out towards the end, just in time to capture Heather's fleeting joy, according to WFSB. But since Heather's condition worsened, it was moved up to 22 December, just before Christmas.

"I knew it was going to be the last time we were going to be together in a love way, it just seemed like the strangest funeral I've ever been to", David Mosher said.

It was exactly a year since David had proposed and Heather had been diagnosed with cancer. "Some of her last words were her vows", the groom said. Under a street light, David dropped to a knee and popped the question.

"What we were seeing, what she was giving us, what she was giving him, was the last of what she had to give", said Christina Karas, a bridesmaid who captured photos of two getting married at the hospital.

The couple had moved up the wedding by eight days at the suggestion of Heather's doctor, who recommended "sooner rather than later", following two rounds of chemotherapy and two surgeries.

Thoughts, prayers, healing and so much love to her family and friends.

And, he added, he's been inspired by his wife's determination: "Heather said, 'I want to keep fighting, ' so that's the mantra I'm picking up".

The image taken by Karas is symbolic of her spirit and strength says Mosher. "I am so in love and I am going to celebrate that love right now".
