Nothing could stop Heather Mosher to marry the love of her life. The bride from Connecticut had been battling breast cancer for a year and her now-husband made sure to make her one wish come true.
They got married hours before cancer took her.
David Mosher, the husband, had proposed her a year earlier on December 23, 2016. This was the same day she got diagnosed with breast cancer.
“She didn’t know I was going to propose that night, but I said to myself, she needs to know she’s not going to go down this road alone,” David said.
Some stories are just so sad.
The pair met in 2005 at a dance class.
“A pair of draft horses, a carriage, and I arranged it all for that night. We went out on the carriage ride and I proposed to her under a street light,” he went ahead to explain.
The pair were inseparable for two years and they loved each other unconditionally.
Her last words were the wedding vows she exchanged with her husband.
She married the man she loved at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut, before dying on December 23.
This is Heather with her mother.
She celebrated her wedding with joy but her dream only lasted 18 hours. Still, their love will remain in the hearts of many forever.
“Nobody thought she would’ve made it that far. She proved them all wrong and that’s what that photo says to me. It reminds me of someone who is crossing the finish line of a marathon or something,” David said to WFSB.
Christina Karas, her friend and bridesmaid was their wedding photographer where she captured all the moment the beautiful couple exchanged.
“We were losing her as we were all standing there, thinking, to hold onto this, because this was the last she had to give,” Karas said.
After the proposal in 2005 her condition got worse and took the most aggressive of all forms cancer could take.
In September 2017, her cancer had spread into her brain and months later she was on life support. She was given only until October to live but she made sure to fight.
“She was tough. Anyone else would have given up a long time ago. The doctors even said we don’t know how she’s still here,” David added.
“I knew it was going to be the last time we were going to be together in a loving way, it just seemed like the strangest funeral I’ve ever been to,” David said.
“She’s my great love, and I’m going to lose her, but I’m not losing her forever,” David said.
“Heather said, ‘I want to keep fighting,’ so that’s the mantra I’m picking up. She was able to fight until the end, I’m going to fight until my end.”
