Couple’s Wedding Photo Goes Viral For Devastating Reason (Photo)

Chris and Nicole Ford

A terminally ill cancer patient from Nashville, Tennessee, married the love of his life when he had just weeks to live.

Chris Ford, 26, had a single dying wish: to marry sweetheart Nicole Wismer, 22. The pair planned to tie the knot in October, but doctors said Ford may not be alive that long.

The wedding was held Aug. 28 at a donated venue in east Nashville, according to the Daily News Journal.

“It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been together, it doesn’t matter the circumstances — it shouldn’t matter. I love him too much [to walk away],” said Nicole Ford after the wedding.

Chris had been battling cancer for nearly a year and was given an 80 percent chance of survival, reports KUSA. He was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of the mouth and throat shortly after the birth of his son, Tristan.

 “During the course of his treatment, his tumors continued to grow and grow. They also grew into his lungs and some of his other organs. About a month ago, he was diagnosed as terminal,” said Amy Ford, Chris’ mother.
