Bride With Stage 4 Cancer Gets Married

Our goal for Rooted Mama Health is to provide our readers with uplifting lifestyle blog articles, beauty articles, as well as health blog articles to help them live happier and healthier lives. And this is a story that taught me a lot about perseverance and always seeking the positive things in life!

Dealing with cancer can be one of the most difficult things that an individual, and their family, can go through. But often times it is important to view the positive things in life instead of only focusing on the negatives. 

I recently read about a story in which a 29 year old woman was planning her dream wedding when she was informed that she was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. What made things even worse was the doctors said Laurin most likely wouldn't live another three months to her wedding date.

This young woman, and her family live on the other side of the country from me but I was still incredibly moved by their story. I believe the strength that Laurin and her family showed on the day they got the news from the doctor will help everyone around the world focus on the positives of life.

After the doctors recommended moving up their wedding, Laurin and Mike decided to get married in three weeks. This gave them enough time to prepare the venue, and get everything ready. And in just three short weeks, Laurin and her now husband Mike, walked down the aisle and got married!

She says it was the best day of her life and she was surrounded by hundreds of friends and family for her special day. She stayed positive through the entire wedding planning period and was able to have her dream wedding even though it wasn't on the date they originally planned for. But this just shows the strength and perseverance that Laurin and Mike have.

I think we can all learn something from hearing a story like this. I know it helped me really think about how good my life is. I have a family that loves me and I am healthy. Not everyone is fortunate to say that, but I think your health is something that many people take for granted.

After getting married, Laurin and Mike are planning on taking their honeymoon to Europe! They say it has always been a dream for them to travel the world. We hope and pray that Laurin's health continues to improve and her family is as supportive as always!
