Most people spend their lives dreaming of their wedding day. They imagine standing in front of the one they love and devoting their whole existence to each other while celebrating with their family and friends and basking in their happiness. While this is the case for some lucky couples, there are others who don’t quite make it to the altar. Although one bride was looking forward to her big day, her world came crumbling down when she was dumped by her fiance a week before the wedding.
The Bride In Question
This story follows the heartbreaking ordeal of Emily Nicholson. In 2012, Emily and her family moved to Australia from the United Kingdom to start a new life across the pond. The youngster seemed to have it all, and quickly found herself an impressive job as a club promoter and bar manager, and even found herself a boyfriend. She fell head over heels in love with Jamie Smith, and they entered into a whirlwind relationship. However, her life changed forever in 2016 when she started to have intense seizures…
A Life-Changing Diagnosis
At first, her parents thought that Emily’s seizures were the result of her being overtired and overworked. Unfortunately, it was so much worse than that. She was later diagnosed with astrocytoma brain cancer, and a year later was given just 12 months to live. Jamie stood by her side throughout the horrific ordeal and was there for Emily when she was feeling her worst. She became weak, she put on weight, and her life changed dramatically, but he was there by her side.
Planning A Wedding
Emily didn’t want to pass away before marrying the love of her life, so the couple decided to tie the knot while they still could. They planned everything down to the last detail, and Jamie was looking forward to his stag do. Yet, Jamie was harboring some feelings, and he just couldn’t keep them to himself any longer. He didn’t want to go ahead with the wedding, and just one week before the big day, he sent her a message on Facebook. He wanted to break up with her, and he had wanted to for a while. That same night, he still went ahead with his stag do.
Amazingly, Emily has gotten over her breakup and is now focused on keeping her life as happy and healthy as possible before the cancer wins.
