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!

- Wedding: February 2015 - Chapel on Base
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

Thank you ladies for all the prayers and helpful comments. My fiancee and I have decided to have an intimate wedding ceremony of 20 guests. We are still deciding if we should do a backyard reception with those 20 guests or going to a restaurant and having a nice dinner.

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

@MrsRoberts52 Diet is important. I’ve been a vegetarian for fifteen years. I was told that the reason why my tumor wasn’t larger than what it is right now is because of my veg diet. 🙂 But I also have a genetic disease called Familial Adenomatous Polyposis that creates polyps throughout my organs and those polyps over time can become cancerous. In other words, my body is prone to cancerous polyps. The ironic thing is that no one in my family has FAP. I guess I just got lucky.
