This amazing Chivette has a story, the Chivers can help write the ending (12 Photos)

Last night, I was contacted by Nicholas Ablahani. He told a touching story about his fiance, Lindsay Anne, that I think should be shared with the Chivers.

In August 2010 when Lindsay discovered a lump on her right breast, she went strait to the doctor. When tests came back, Lindsay was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. Even worse, tests on her lymph nodes came back positive as well. The cancer was spreading.

Just one week prior to her diagnosis, Nick and Lindsay had booked a trip to Disney World. Her surgery wasn't scheduled for two weeks so Lindsay said they should go anyway. According to Nick, "It was the saddest vacation of our lives."

Because Lindsay was young, she opted to undergo the full battery of treatment. First, Lindsay had a double mastectomy. When that healed, she began punishing rounds of chemotherapy and radiation at Sloan Kettering in NCY. On the brutal chemo treatments Nick said,

"I've never witnessed someone act so strong through all the adverse emotional and physical effects that chemotherapy puts your body through. I often felt so helpless because I wished I could take the pain away for her, but I stood by her side and did the best I could to act as a support system through these hard time. As strong as Lindsay is, the chemo took a toll. But she was determined to give cancer both barrels. And she did. She beat the hell out of it."

As soon as Lindsay began to regain her strength, Nick went to the middle school, where Lindsay works as a history teacher, to surprise her with an engagement ring.

Lindsay and Nick wanted to have the best wedding they could so when Lindsay stumbled on a Facebook called the Fairy Tale Wedding Giveaway, she decided to enter. The winning bride will be flown to LA to be fitted for a designer wedding dress made by Vera Wang. The bridesmaids will all be outfitted in Vera Wang's 'White' collection. The bride will also win a 'dream makeover' from Kim Kardashian's Glam Squad, even a Williams-Sonoma dream kitchen.

Nick and Lindsay entered amongst a field of 3,000 other hopeful couples. Whichever couple had the most people 'Likes' their Facebook page would win.

Nick and Lindsay were shocked last Friday to find out they'd made the top 10 finalists. In fact, because of Lindsay's compelling story, they were in 2nd place overall! But sadly they were 4,400 'Likes' short of winning, and with voting closing tonight at midnight (Wed.), 4,400 Likes is just too high a hill to climb with friends and family on Facebook.

Then, of all things, Nick looked down the shirt he was wearing and remembered he had A LOT of friends 🙂 He emailed theCHIVE.

Chivers, go to Nick and Linday's Facebook page and hammer it sideways. All you have to do is 'Like' the page right here. Let's help turn one of the worst years in Lindsay's life into one of the best years of her life. Lindsay's already made some great comebacks in life, this time the Chivers can help her comeback again in the last minute. If they win, I'll do my best to get photos of her amazing trip and eventually, the wedding itself.

I'll keep you updated here and in the DAR today at the progress. Chivers, you know what to do...

We have until Midnight EST to blow this up, Chivers. Go to Lindsay’s Facebook page and Like it right here!

    • Jay

      Chive On from Ohio. I hope you have the wedding you dreamed of as a little girl.

      • AsciiAdam

        You are very welcome. My family to yours "Keep Calm and Chive on" forever. Have a great day, have a great life. Congrats.

    • Kristen Weeks

      Chive on from Florida. I hope you get everything you want out of this wedding. It's great to be treated like a princess on your wedding day, it's even more wonderful to be marrying such a wonderful and supportive husband. Good luck and God bless!

  • Crazyness

    Liked and Shared, here's hoping it's enough to get this dream wedding for you.

  • Trent

    I don't really get the online camaraderie. The couple you are all voting against is a military family. Dude is on his third deployment. Yes, it sucks she got cancer, but if you read the other couples stories they had some bad stuff happen too. So, basically, just because these people frequent the same website as you, they are more deserving of a dream wedding? Speaking of which, what a selfish prize to take anyway. All of this money spent so you can have one good day? How about asking the services be exchanged for money to be donated to cancer research?

    • Kristen Weeks

      I understand the sentiment…but why should she be less deserving of the attention? The Chivers have banded together for other causes, so why raise a big fuss over this? This lady didn't chose to get cancer, and it's a disease that can kill you. Going through the treatment takes away your energy and causes great pain that only strong painkillers can ease. If this woman can go through all of that and come out on top, she deserves a day to be a princess and be pampered.

      • Trent

        And I think it's great what the chive does. Helping a little girl with an extremely rare disease, saving a fire department, etc. But help me and my bridesmaids get really expensive dresses and makeovers for one day of enjoyment over plenty of other deserving couples? I'm out on this one is all.

        • TheBigMachine

          Dude, it's a competition and she's doing it right!

    • AsciiAdam

      Yes, we like each other. Things in common. That's all we have. I Spent 12 years in the Army so I would love for the 2nd place finishers to get their dream too. Thing is, I was in the military for 12 years. In 3 deployments he should have made some nice cash, I did. Paid for my first house with the money I made over in Iraq. That was being single (wife would not get married until I came back), and E-4 pay. I wish them the best, I really do, but no more than anyone else.

    • Art

      I kinda get what you're saying. Honestly the first thing that popped into my head was "Is that against the rules of the competition?" Seems like it would be. But if it is isn't then everyone had the same opportunity and this couple shouldn't be penalized because they had a great idea to get votes.

    • @SpidersWillGetU

      Cancer touches a nerve because when you have been through it, or lost someone to it, you feel completely helpless.

      Anything we can do to brighten this chicks day gets my 100% support.

  • MatCooper

    I hope the wedding is all you both ever dreamed of- keepthe updates comin!!

  • Bzzliteyr

    I lost my father to Liver Cancer.. CHIVE ON!!

  • bromontana

  • Badness

  • Kerrie-Anne Streader

  • JG

    Hey chivers, I find it ironic that we bombarded Kim Kardashian’s Facebook on HUMPDAY.

    • art


  • Keven

    Truth is we would of voted for anyone they said. Lots of people voted for a personal reason for them and others just said hey why not support a chiver. It sucks and it doesn’t at the same time, just wish the top two people could of won.

  • Russell

    I just sat and refreshed the face book page over and over to watch the likes start going up it was pretty awesome
