Finding yourself bidding goodbye to your own kid is the worst thing that can ever happen.
If you’ve never gone through such an experience before, it gets so scary, unbelievable and overly disappointing. Different families have their own ways of handling such situations. At that moment, all you want to do is accomplish all of your loved ones’ cherished dreams, and these two parents wanted just that for their kid who was ailing of cancer.
Many kids would have chosen to do something drastic like riding around the town in a fire-truck, but all the 5 year old Corey Edwards wanted to happen in his last days was his parents wedding. This boy – from Teignmouth, Devon, in U.K – had lived with a terminal heart condition since his 7th month on earth.
Corey spent most of his life in hspital. His mom and dad were committed to each other, but they had to do something to lift his spirits. They threw a wedding and exchanged their vows at his bedside in the hospital.
Corey passed away five days later, but although it’s so gut-wrenching, am impressed that his final wish was granted. His family will always have an angel around.
Memories like Corey’s must be kept, and if you can SHARE this story on Facebook, that would be a good contribution.
