Sometimes, when you find “the One” or the love of your life, you can’t wait to marry that person and spend the rest of your life with him or her.

Just a year after meeting in swing dance class, David Mosher proposed to his girlfriend, Heather. But that very same day, a doctor told Heather that a mass in one of her breasts was cancerous. Five days later, she was diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer, an aggressive and fast-growing cancer.

The cancer metastasized throughout her body, eventually spreading to her brain. Weak and in pain, she was confined to a hospital bed as she labored to breathe and walk.

In light of Heather’s condition, the couple decided to say their “I do’s” sooner than anticipated, just a few days before Christmas.

Photographer Christina Karas, one of Heather’s best friends, who also served as a bridesmaid, captured the impromptu wedding ceremony in touching photos.

Christina told Today, “When she raised her arms, she was at death’s door, but she was joyful and exuberant. She just wanted it to be a celebration.”

Just 18 hours after David and Heather exchanged vows, the bride passed away. Those vows were her final words.

The original wedding date of December 30, 2017, ended up being the day Heather was buried.
