I’m so grateful to the staff at Bronson for the support they provided during our “mid-treatment” wedding, even if our wedding day didn’t go the way we initially planned.

Anonymous, Patient

I was scheduled to get married earlier that week at the church, but the wedding was canceled at the last minute because the minister wasn’t able to attend. This was a concern, because our marriage license was set to expire soon. I had chemotherapy at the Bronson Battle Creek Cancer Care Center the morning that the marriage license was going to expire, and I shared with the staff that today was going to be my wedding day.

Fortunately, a minister agreed to come in to the Cancer Care Center and officially marry my husband and me, in the middle of my treatment. The staff at Bronson went above and beyond to make this day special. They provided us with a wedding cake, bought us flowers and blew bubbles when we were announced husband and wife.

I’m so grateful to the staff at Bronson for the support they provided during our “mid-treatment” wedding, even if our wedding day didn’t go the way we initially planned. I brought three roses into the wedding: two for the witnesses and one to leave in the chemotherapy treatment room to serve as a symbol of hope. I want others to know that it is never too late to find true love.
