Why The Story Of These Two Getting Married Is So VERY SPECIAL.
Marriage is not something a person enters into lightly, but sometimes, when it feels like time is running out, those who are battling cancer feel a stronger need than ever to be united with the ones they love.
18-year-old Swift Myers had been battling Ewing’s sarcoma on and off for the past 7 years. When things took a turn for the worse, doctors thought it best to induce a coma. When he awoke from it 11 days later, there was only one thing he could think of – marrying his high school sweetheart, Abbi. Before that, he had often kidded with Abbi about getting married. But this time, he was serious.
Abbi said yes, so a few days later, in the intensive care unit at the St. Francis Children’s Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with Swift decked out in a dress shirt and red bowtie in his bed, the two exchaged vows.
Family and friends huddled in the ICU lobby and Swift’s room during the ceremony. They worked together to arrange for a photographer, videographer and flowers for the big event. And Swift’s high school history teacher, Kendra Roulet, even bought them their wedding rings.
Says Abbi: “He always supports me. I wanted to wait to go to college until he gets better. He wants me to go to college and keep going on with my plans.”
And I’m sure their plans include a good, long life together.
