Couple Weds in Delaware Hospital after Terminal Cancer Diagnosis


Man Diagnosed with Cancer Marries in Delaware Hospital

A couple held a wedding Sunday in a Delaware hospital after the man was diagnosed with cancer.

Gus and Rachel Jimenez took their vows in a hospital wing that was quickly transformed into a venue.

According to Rachel, everything changed in August when doctors did an x-ray and found a small little lump on Gus’ lung. It was cancer that currently has no cure.

Rachel said Gus kept proposing to her every date after their first date jokingly, but both knew it was serious. He later proposed for real on Feb. 15.

The hospital staff transformed a wing into a venue where the couple held the wedding. The community also offered a free dress, a free tux, and free photography.
