Bride battling breast cancer says 'I do' 18 hours before her death

Heather Mosher, a young woman with breast cancer, was married on December 22, 18 hours before she died, as reported in an ABC News.

Lindsay then died of the cancer hours after she and Mosher were Wednesday at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut.

"I had planned to ask her on December 23, 2016", Dave Mosher, 35, told local media.

But by September 2017, the cancer spread.

Heather Mosher was diagnosed last December with breast cancer - the same day her then-boyfriend, Dave Mosher, proposed to her on a horse-and-carriage ride.

Speaking of the photo of his new wife, David told WFSB: "It reminds me of someone who is crossing the finish line of a marathon or something".

'Nobody thought she would've made it that far.

"She was tough", David said.

"We realized it was something that needed to happen because she probably wasn't going to make it", Mosher said.

'We found out it was in her brain and a couple months later, she was on life support with a breathing tube, ' David said.

In homes and hospitals across the country, parents were welcoming their new children into the world on the first day of the year. Ava weighed 7 pounds 9 ounces and arrived after her mom was in labor for almost 11 hours, hospital officials said.

It was exactly a year since David had proposed and Heather had been diagnosed with cancer.

Many people thought Heather wouldn't make it to October, but that's when the fighting spirit David fell in love with took center stage.

Unfortunately, on December 30, instead of preparing for their wedding at Plantsville Congregational Church, Mosher had to take part in his wife's funeral at the church, at the same time they were supposed to get married.

The wedding was planned for a long time. "It was the hardest hour of my life", David said. The bride anxious she wouldn't live to see her wedding day and when her health took a turn, family and friends planned accordingly. The doctors recommended the couple bring the wedding forward though.

"The doctors said we know you want to get married on December 30th, but if you want to get married, you should move it up", David said. It was held at the Saint Francis chapel on December 22nd with friends and family watching.

"I am so in love and I am going to celebrate that love right now".

Heather valiantly proclaimed her vows to David.

"It was just like surreal because I'm supposed to be exchanging vows to her, and here I am saying goodbye", Dave Mosher added. A bridesmaid snapped a picture of Heather with her arms raised in victory after sharing her vows with her new husband.

"She was gorgeous and she just felt like home to me", David told the news station.
