The Bride had Cancer

Happiness is always within reach
no matter how long it lasts


Katie getting chemo treatment

The girl in the picture is Katie Kirkpatrick, she is 21. Next to her is her fiance, Nick, 23. The picture was taken shortly before their wedding ceremony, held on January 11, 2005.

Katie has terminal cancer and spend hours a day receiving medication. In the picture, Nick is waiting for her on one of the many sessions of Chemo to end.

Katie does wedding prep

Even in pain and dealing with her organs shutting down, with the help of morphine, Katie took care of every single part of the wedding planning. Her dress had to be adjusted several times due to Katie 's constant weight loss.

Nick's parents with bride and groom

An expected guest was her oxygen tank. Katie had to use it during the ceremony and reception. The other couple in this picture is Nick's parents, very emotional with the wedding and to see their son marrying the girl he fell in love when he was an adolescent.

Guys singing to Katie at wedding

Katie, in a wheel chair listening to her husband and friends singing to her.

Katie resting at wedding

In the middle of the party, Katie had to rest for a bit and catch her breath. The pain does not allow her to stand for long period of time.

The bride and groom

Katie died 5 days after her wedding. To see a fragile woman dress as bride with a beautiful smile makes you think... Happiness is always there within reach, no matter how long it lasts. Lets enjoy life and don't live a complicated life. Life is too short.

Work as if it was your first day. Forgive as soon as possible.

Love without boundaries. Laugh without control and never stop smiling. Please pray for those suffering from cancer.
