Woman Battling Breast Cancer Dies Just Hours After Her Hospital Wedding

Published

on

The story of a woman who died from cancer 18 hours after getting married has broken hearts across the world.

Heather Mosher, from Connecticut, married her husband, David Mosher a few days before Christmas, after the couple brought the wedding forward out of fears Heather wouldn’t make it to their planned ceremony on 30 December.

And now photos of the wedding posted by bridesmaid Christina Karas have gone viral, with many people being moved by Heather’s inspirational approach.

“It reminds me of someone who is crossing the finish line of a marathon or something,” David said. “Nobody thought she would’ve made it that far. She proved them all wrong and that’s what that photo says to me.”

David and Heather

Heather and David met at a swing dance class in May 2015 and quickly became inseparable.

Fast forward to 23 December 2016 – it was the day David was planning to propose but it was also the day Heather was diagnosed with breast cancer.

“She didn’t know I was going to propose that night, but I said to myself, she needs to know she’s not going to go down this road alone,” David said.

He went through with the proposal as planned, popping the question under a street light after a horse-drawn carriage ride.

Five days later, the couple found out Heather’s cancer was triple negative, which is a rare and aggressive form of the disease. And their lives were soon consumed by cancer.

In September 2017, they found out the cancer had spread to Heather’s brain, and two months later she was on life support with a breathing tube.

Many people thought she wouldn’t make it much longer, but Heather was a fighter.

“She was tough,” David said. “Anyone else would have given up a long time ago. The doctors even said we don’t know how she’s still here.”

But with the wedding set for 30 December, Heather was desperate to make it. The doctors recommended the couple bring the wedding forward though.

David and Heather got married on 22 December surrounded by family and friends.

But the last words Heather would ever say were her vows to David – she died on 23 December, 18 hours after getting married.

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

And on 30 December – the original date for the wedding – David said goodbye to his wife at her funeral, held at the church in which they were meant to marry.

“She’s my great love, and I’m going to lose her, but I’m not losing her forever,” David said.

And, he added, he’s been inspired by his wife’s determination: “Heather said, ‘I want to keep fighting,’ so that’s the mantra I’m picking up. She was able to fight till the end, I’m going to fight until my end.”

on

A bishop accused of defiling three girls he was living with at an orphanage, infecting one of them with HIV has now sentenced to 75 years in prison.



Kisumu Resident Magistrate Pauline Mbulika found him guilty of three counts of defilement and deliberate transmission of HIV.

Joseph Agutu had promised to sponsor the minors before he started defiling them.

Agutu who hid his face from the cameras as police escorted him out of the solitary cell to Kodiaga Maximum Prison, had maintained his innocence throughout the proceedings.

He was charged with committing the crime against the girls between April and July 2016. One of the girls is aged 14 while two are 15 years old.

The court heard that the accused intentionally committed the crime and deliberately infected one of the minors with HIV.

The accused also reportedly touched the girls inappropriately on various dates between April and July 12, 2016. In addition, Agutu also faced an alternative charge of touching the private parts of the minors.

Four prosecution witnesses pointed an accusing finger to the Bishop with the minors recounting the sexual encounters that the man subjected them to.

One of the minors who is an orphan painfully narrated to the court how the bishop lured her and her grandmother to the trap.

“My grandmother brought me to him and he promised to sponsor my education. My grandmother went back home and left me with him at the church,” said the minor.

After a while, she told the court, the bishop defiled her and called the other girl and defiled them too as she slept on the floor. She said they were crying throughout the ordeal.

The court heard that the following morning the bishop refused to allow them to go to school but instead ordered them to go to church.
