The Cancer Care Center staff went above and beyond to make our day. We couldn’t have planned a better wedding.
I had been diagnosed with cervical cancer and I was going through chemo and radiation at the Battle Creek Cancer Care Center. I was here five days a week. Mike and I had gotten a marriage license, but couldn’t get dates to line up with family. Our 30-day window on the license was about to expire. So, on March 7 of 2018, when I arrived at the Cancer Care Center for my chemotherapy appointment, we told the staff that a preacher was going to stop by to perform a marriage ceremony. Even though I was sick, we still wanted our lives to go on. Sometimes you just have to carpe diem.
The reaction of the staff was grand. They took off in different directions. One got a bouquet of flowers, one got us a cake. It was so cool. I was hooked up to the IV during the wedding, and there were 30 people from the staff that gathered around for the ceremony. Two nurses stood up for us.
After we were married they blew bubbles and even played the wedding march as we left. They went above and beyond to make our day. We couldn’t have planned a better wedding. The next day, Mike brought in 6 dozen white roses to pass out to staff to thank them.
One year later we decided to come back to celebrate our anniversary with the staff. We do consider them our extended family. We are very blessed to have Bronson helping us all the way around.
