There’s nothing worse than finding out the news of a loved one beingterminally ill, and that you onlyhave a short period of time with them left.
But it’s all about making the best of a bad situation and believing that anything is possible with a little bit of hope.
On February 14, 2017,Kevin Sochanchak and Ashley Wood tied the knot, a date that marked 11 years since Kevin and Ashley officially started dating. But there was so much more to their journeythan what met the eye.
In 2011, Ashley was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Justthree years later, Kevin was diagnosed with stomach cancer, and was told he only had six months to live.
Due to the uncertainties that their diseases brought into life, the couple kept putting off their wedding plans, but finally pushed to make the date final when they won a contest at a banquet hall allowing them to have a wedding that’s totally paid for. Not to mention Kevin completely defied the odds and lived three years beyond what was expected.
But unfortunately, just days before their wedding, Kevin was put in hospice care.However, that didn’t stop him from having the wedding of his dreams with the love of his life, and making a memory that he would never forget.
And Kevin did much more than attend his wedding he danced, smiled and laughed. As for the future? Kevin and Ashley are optimistic that it looked bright, despite what the doctors told them. After all they had been through, the now-married couple felt like they can overcome anything.
