Medical Staff Helps Cancer Patient Marry at Dana Farber In Boston
Oh, so wonderful to have some happy news among all this bad news that's on your TV screen every night.
According to a report from WCVB, a couple from Massachusetts, Stephen Pappas and Amanda Perry, were married on Tuesday at Dana Farber Cancer Institute at Brigham & Women's hospital in Boston because they were unsure of the future for Amanda.
Amanda beat leukemia about 10 years ago, but it returned last year, says the report. She has gone through chemo and stem cell transplant - both very unpleasant procedures, but the disease returned.
Upon becoming very ill on Tuesday, the couple decided that they wanted to get married no matter where it was going to be. So, the doctors and nurses helped them get a marriage license, a cake, paper flowers for Amanda to hold and they lined the hospital hallway to walk Amanda down the aisle to greet her now husband. The whole thing was extremely touching and the couple could not be more grateful to the doctors and nurses at Brigham & Women's Hospital and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, according to the report.
