Connecticut Woman Fighting Cancer Married At Hospital 18 Hours Before Her Death

Although the news was heartbreaking, he decided to make the best of his time left with her.

Despite many experts saying she would not make it through October, Lindsay kept going.

The couple started dating in 2015 after meeting at a swing dancing class, leading to his bittersweet wedding proposal on December 23, 2016. "The way we would talk about it, you always kind of felt this isn't it".

Heather and her fiancé, 35-year-old David Mosher, met in may, 2015 at dance and since then were inseparable.

'She didn't know I was going to propose that night, but I said to myself, she needs to know she's not going to go down this road alone, ' David said.

And he continued with the proposal as planned.

The TV station reports he set up the ideal proposal that night with a horse-led carriage ride. "I proposed to her", Mosher said.

"We would go to Dana Farber weekly". Our life became consumed with cancer'. Lindsay's cancer was increasingly aggressive, and in September, they learned it had spread to her brain. 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. I am so in love and I am going to celebrate that love right now, ' Karas said of the image.

The wedding had been brought forward and had originally been planned for Dec 30, which, in another twist of bitter irony, ended up being the date of her funeral.

"The doctors said 'we know you want to get married on December 30th, but if you want to get married, you should move it up, '" David Mosher said.

The couple held their wedding a year later at St. Francis Hospital, Dec. 22, 2017, attended by family and friends. "She was able to fight til the end, I'm going to fight until my end", David said.

The last words Heather uttered were her wedding vows.

Surrounded by family and friends, with bridesmaid, friend and photographer Christina Karas capturing the moment, the couple pledged to spend the rest of their lives together as the bride lay in her hospital bed.

Mosher said, "She's my great love, and I'm going to lose her, but I'm not losing her forever". It's the same date, one year prior, when David and Heather got engaged under a street light. "I wanted her to feel that I'm there and that she did not have to overcome this one way", says David.

Obviously, the Internet responded with an outpouring of love and support for David following his heart-wrenching story, and he added that he's determined to keep his wife's spirit alive.

"Her outpouring of selfless love reminded me of Heather's reaction to tragedy in other's lives".
