My fiance has less than one year left at only 24. Please help me marry her and give her a dream wedding!

Short Summary

Hello, my name is Shawn Wood. I am 28 years old and live in Courtenay BC Canada. I am a business student in my third year. Over 9 years ago I met my soul mate Emily Niinemets, who is now 24, and we have been madly in love for a long time now. Emily is the most beautiful woman on the inside and out. She makes me want to be a better person everyday that I wake up.

Last August Emily noticed a lump on her neck and by January she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Agressive Large cell Lymphoma. She has been battling this cancer since January and has just found out that her options have run out. she has tried every chemo and treatment available and has been given only 3-12 months to live.

I asked my beautiful fiance to marry me 5 years ago, and have never gone through with it. When I asked her what she would like to do more than anything in her last months she said she wants to become my wife.

My world has come to a crashing hault and I feel lost in this world. If I am able to provide for her the dream she has always wanted I hope to give her peace as my wife as she passes on. The ability to make her smile is becoming more and more challenging as the days go on, and I desperatly need the help of some good hearted people.

What We Need & What You Get

I have fund raised locally and looked at costs for flowers, invintations, catering, hall, ceremony, church, music, dress, tux, rings, decorations, family from out of town... the list goes on and on. I estimate that with $5000 raised from this online source that I would be able to give my fiance a dream for me and her to charish to the end.

The Impact

This is a dream maker, when someone faces a horrible truth as this one, they find it hard to not look at the world as a biter sweet. All of a sudden the grass is greener and the sun is brighter, but you are still hurt that you must leave it. The days are growing longer and becoming more difficult to keep a smile on our faces. I want to give Emily the day she deserves. Emily needs to have a day to feel beautiful again, to have all eyes on her, to know that she is the only one I ever would want.

I beg that you give generously not only for the chance to marry the love of my life, but to help me make this beautiful women smile everytime she looks at her hand and sees that she is now Mrs Emily Wood. Nothing would make me happier for the rest of my life.

Please help by sharing my story, my passion and courage for facing these hard times. Relect in what you could do for someone even in your life that is touched by cancer. Remember that we are all in this together and we need to do for each other while we can. Becuase sometimes in life, there is no reset button.
