David Mosher, 35, and Heather Lindsay, 31, got married in a hospital room at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut, just hours before Heather passed away from her one-year battle with breast cancer.

David had planned to propose to Lindsay on Dec 23, 2016 after dating more than two years. That morning, the pair went to the doctor and Lindsay was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer that had already spread to her lymph nodes.


The diagnosis didn’t stop him from proposing.


“I left the plans as they were. I proposed to her,” David said. “We had the toughest year of our life. She struggled with her cancer through the traditional chemotherapy.”

The cancer soon spread to her brain and lungs. The couple set a wedding date for Dec. 30., but as the date neared, doctors explained that Lindsay would probably not make it until then.

On Dec. 22, dressed in her wedding dress and lying in her hospital bed, Lindsay was taken to the hospital’s chapel, where she and David exchanged wedding vows.


Eighteen hours later, Lindsay passed away.

The photos of the wedding have since touched people across the world.


“This has been a heartbreaking time, but I’m glad this story has brought hope to so many people,” bridesmaid and photographer Christina Karas told TODAY. “This person was in her last moments and still feeling all this joy.”
