Mum Battling Stage 4 Cancer Gets Married To Long Time Partner In Hospital Bed

Mum Battling Stage 4 Cancer Gets Married To Long Time Partner In Hospital Bed

Some people picture their weddings days years before getting engaged or even getting a partner. Some like to imagine themselves walking down the aisle or standing at the alter watching their future wife or husband come into the room.

While they might have these plans set in stone, plans can change at the drop of a hat and sometimes you have to mix things up.

She noticed a lump in her neck a few months ago and when she went to check it out with a medical professional, she got the news that would change her life.

Toni has been with her partner since high school and Jesse always wanted to marry her so he proposed to her and got as many people as possible from the hospital involved in the ceremony.

Patient Experience Nurse Paul Leonard and ICU Nurse Mary Fox were two of the wedding planners.

Paul said: "We sent an email to all ICU staff asking who wanted to get involved, and we got an overwhelming response.

"Within three days, staff organised everything from home-made cakes, a hair and makeup artist, flowers, decorations for the reception (seminar) room and Toni's cubical, among many tasks in preparation for the big day."

More than 150 staff were involved and helped make it a perfect day for Toni and Jesse.

They also had backup plans in place in case Toni's condition changed suddenly.

Toni was in a white wedding dress for the ceremony and it's hard not to look at the pictures and well up.

The bride said: "It's so beautiful, honesty I thought it was going to be small and then it exploded with all this love from everyone, it was perfect, I loved it."

Jesse added: "From where we started five weeks ago, I was told I'd only have five to ten days with her, now we are married and I can't ask for anything more."

According to 7 News, Toni has since undergone a life-saving operation which has been branded a success. This type of stuff gives you faith back in humanity.
