I may be dying… but I’m blessed

Kerry, 35, was delighted when her partner Kevin proposed and excitedly began planning their wedding. Then doctors delivered a bombshell. Just months before their big day, Kerry was diagnosed with breast cancer. The wedding was off and never spoken of again. After a four-year battle, she was told her cancer is terminal. Earlier this year Kevin surprised her – with her dream wedding. We placed brave Kerry’s story in Pick Me Up magazine.
