She got married to the love of her life one year after she was diagnosed with cancer.
Getting married and building a home for our family is probably one of everybody’s goals. Everybody needs to love and be loved—and it is never too late to exercise your right to do so. Heather Lindsay believes it is never too late, even if she was already dying after being diagnosed with cancer.
Two days before Christmas of 2016, Heather was told by doctors that she had breast cancer, and it was a very aggressive type. Months passed and her cancer was spreading all over her body, affecting her way of life. When her doctors learned that Heather and her boyfriend David intended to get married in December 22, 2017, they suggested to move up the date especially when time was running out for Heather.
But despite the devastating diagnosis, David stuck to his plans.
“I left the plans as they were. I proposed to her,” he said.
“We had the toughest year of our life.
“She struggled with her cancer through the traditional chemotherapy.”
Fortunately, Heather was able marry the love of her life, 35-year-old David, from her bed at St Francis Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut, US, on December 22—just three days before Christmas.
It was moments after she said “I do” that she was pictured lifting her arms into the air, which was later posted on Facebook, along with the caption: “With triple-negative breast cancer throughout her system, the unstoppable Heather Lindsay gathered all of her strength for one final act – to marry Dave Mosher in the Hospital Chapel.
“Witnessed by an extraordinary family, friends as well as the many doctors and nurses who cared for her, Heather passed away less than 24 hours later.
Speaking of the photo of his new wife, David told WFSB : “It reminds me of someone who is crossing the finish line of a marathon or something.”
He added: “Nobody thought she would’ve made it that far.
“She proved them all wrong and that’s what that photo says to me.”
