‘He got down on one knee. Weeks later we were told, ‘He has 6 months or less to live. You have to move your wedding date.’ The cancer was spreading astronomically.’: Woman marries love of her life before his passing, ‘There wasn’t a dry eye’

“10 short days after he asked me to be his girlfriend, Josh was told the 3 words nobody ever wants to hear: ‘You have cancer.’ He told me it was okay to walk away, that he wouldn’t think any less of me.
