Man diagnosed with terminal cancer marries his partner in an emotional last minute ceremony (photos)

Ray Kershaw, 63, and his partner, Tracy Brooks, 45, had hoped to wed next year but were forced to change their plans when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer in March. Ray, who has cancer of the duodenum, has just days left to live and is currently being cared for at Springhill Hospice in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, England.

They tied the knot at an emotional ceremony, thanks to the kind donations of strangers and the charity Gift of a Wedding, which was arranged in less than 24 hours. Wedding organisers had earlier put out a call for donations for a ceremony originally scheduled to go ahead on June 2, but Ray's condition started to deteriorate and it was brought forward to Saturday.
 Within hours of publishing the appeal, strangers and businesses had offered to pay for wedding cars, flowers, venue dressing, a cake and everything else required for the event. The wedding held and was attended by close relatives, friends and nursing staff at the hospice.

you are just tooooooo daft. Is that the right comment to make. They did that because they genuinely love each other. Not everyone is an opportunist like you who would desert a person in their time of need.

It's not what Nnenne said. It's about the 'gbensh' part.

If you had any sense at all you'd know that marriage is a bond between two people and it never ever ends even when the person dies. It's about being sensitive to what they share and it has absolutely nothing to do with you hon.
