Woman married a few hours before succumbing to cancer

Wearing a wedding dress with an oxygen mask strapped to her face, proud Heather Lindsay, 31, couldn't contain her joy as she Wednesday David Mosher, 35, in front of loved ones.

After the ceremony, Mosher told the CBS affiliate WFSB News, "It reminds me of someone who is crossing the finish line of a marathon or something".

Despite the bleak prognosis, Lindsay was determined to make it to her wedding day, set for December 30, 2017.

"She's getting to shout from the rooftops that she loves Dave and is able to say 'I'm his wife, '" Karas said.

A love story that is touching many people around the world, Heather Mosher took her vows to husband Dave on December 22, exactly one year to the day that he proposed, which was also the day she was diagnosed with cancer. But he made a decision to go through with the proposal that night as they rode a horse-drawn carriage.

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

As per a report by The Daily News, the wedding took place in the chapel of the St. Francis Hospital, Connecticut, with the couple surrounded by their friends and family. As someone who wanted nothing more than to see my friend truly happy, I felt I had to capture these images, which by this point I knew were her final moments with us.

The wedding had been brought forward and had originally been planned for Dec 30, which, in another twist of bitter irony, ended up being the date of her funeral. "I proposed to her", Mosher said. Lindsay was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016.

They realized that if they were to fulfill their dream of getting married, it would have to be soon, and in the hospital.

"She was tough. Anyone else would have given up a long time ago", Mosher said. It was held at the Saint Francis chapel on December 22nd with friends and family watching. How do I know God is real?

Bridesmaid Christina Karas recorded the last part of Heather's wedding vows.

Mosher said, "She's my great love, and I'm going to lose her, but I'm not losing her forever".

"The last words she said were her vows", Karas told WFSB. It's the same date, one year prior, when David and Heather got engaged under a street light.

The wedding, initially scheduled for December 30, was pushed up to December 22.

"Heather said, 'I want to keep fighting, ' so that's the mantra I'm picking up".

And even though David is attending the funeral for his wife, he's taken a piece of her spirit with him to take with him, forever. "She was able to fight until the end, I'm going to fight until my end".
