I am a very proud woman, and think we all must help ourseves whenever we can, but I also choose to be very generous in situations I consider deserving. I would contact your local Cancer support group and ask for help.

You would pay it forward by returning the favor when you are well and strong, by helping another young couple whose life plans have been altered by Cancer.

Please consider this idea.

Just commenting to send positive thoughts for your recovery. I agree with everyone else- plan something simple and intimate now, and have a big celebration once you’ve got this beat!

Definitely sending prayers or healing powers, whichever you prefer your way. 

If I were in your situation I would get married.   UNLESS getting married changed insurance which in turn changes treatment.   Do nothing that can jeopardize your health.   If you do choose to get married make it all about your vision and dreams without stressing yourself.  Stay true to your heart.

I’m in tears. Too often people take something as simple as a wedding for granted. 

 

But you are so brave and strong. I think you should just do it. Maybe do a small wedding, and big reception?

ANy chance you would be content to elope or have a small, intimate wedding? My husband and I eloped, and I really thought that I would be disappointed but I was very happy with how things turned out. One of my good friends eloped when her now husband was diagnosed with cancer (my mom was actually their officiant – huge bonus of having a reverend for your mom!). They had a huge party for their one year anniversary

LilyValley:  Not trying to be pushy, but this is something very personal to me. My aunt battled with cancer her whole life and when she changed her diet (ate mostly fruits and veggies and whole grains) her cancer went away. You will be surprised how eatting more healthy can heal the body. 

Praying for you and your family, and congrats on your up coming wedding!! xoxo
