This Is what true love looks like. 24 year old William Kent met his future wife, Emma while still in School.
After many years of dating, he proposed to her on Valentine’s Day in 2009 but they decided to postpone their wedding until 2014 for financial reasons.
Their life together and plans for the future were dealt a bitter blow in April when William began getting pains in his arm and coughing.
He was later diagnosed with lymphoma cancer and fought the disease for 6 months before it spread to his nervous system and brain, which resulted in the loss of his speech.
The couple had decided to get married in the hospital and arranged an impromptu ceremony for October 3 where they exchanged vows.
William, who by this time could no longer speak, said “I do” by squeezing Emma’s hand.
Sadly, William died 11 days after his wedding to the love of his life.
Life is unpredictable and fleeting, never take it or anybody in it for granted. In the end love will be our only living legacy.
Damn stick in my eye
Geez, cancer. You're such a dick.
I'm glad they found love and cherished for the years they had together.

Her inner beauty is STUNNING because it reflects her love. They were both blessed to have each other.
May God continue to bless and comfort you, Emma.

This story touched my heart. I lost a good friend to lymphoblastic lymphoma just about two years ago. But just like this fella William, they both fought the good fight and got every drop out of life while they were here. WE MUST FIGHT TO CURE THIS DISEASE
this definitely makes you feel better, coz you´re alive. why?
Thank you Chive for bringing this to us. It just gives us more reason to be good people and live happy!
KCCO & Fuck CANCER
What a love story. She stuck by him no matter what. I am sorry for her loss. Thoughts go to the family and friends. So sad..
I am truly saddened for Emma and my heart goes out to her. For I too, know EXACTLY what she has and is going through. Life without your true love is very hard to cope with somedays. You wished you can hold them just once more or to gaze into their beautiful eyes or just to even hear them speak.
I met my wife in 2000 and she told me she had Multiple Sclerosis. She was such a great lady I didn't care and dated her for two years. In all the years we were together she NEVER let the MS define who she was or let it stop her in doing anything. In 2002 we got married and had a very wonderful life till 2006 when the MS starting rearing it's ugly head and started taking away some her abilities to function. By 2008 she could no longer walk and was confined to a scooter yet I still wanted to keep loving and caring for her. By 2010, she lost her ability of fine motor skills, meaning she could no longer brush her own hair or her own teeth but I still wanted to keep loving and caring for her. In April of 2012, she lost her ability to feed herself so I now was having to spoon feed her but I still wanted to keep loving and caring for her. At the end of May, she lost her ability to swallow and then she lost her battle with MS and passed away on June 3rd @ 7:30 pm. I was there holding her hand staring into her eyes and caressing her face while she smiled at me and she took her last breath and slowly closed her eyes never to open them again. I felt her hand go limp, then cold as her soul left her body.
Once in great while, true love is found. For those that still have their spouse, NEVER forget to tell them you love them for no other reason than just because. Make sure the last words spoken to your loved one before you go to work or to sleep is "I love you" for you never know if those will be the last time you get to say it. One thing I would like to suggest to all, record your spouse's voice telling you they love you so you can always hear their voice again. This is one regret I have is that I didn't do before my wife died.
Damn that's rough. RIP.
powerful love never ends! KCCO!
and now im crying…
Sad, but the title says it all. Love still won out for the entire time they had together. Cancer sucks.
I'm gonna go tell everyone how much I love them… FUCK cancer…
