Couple Forced To Plan Wedding In Just 4 Days After They Are Both Diagnosed With Cancer

A couple had just four days to plan their dream wedding day after they were both diagnosed with cancer within two years of each other.

The devoted pair, Amy Averiss and Lee Sharpe, had already postponed their wedding plans set for August after mum-of-three Amy collapsed on Boxing Day and was told the neuroendocrine cancer she thought she had beaten had returned.

But in cruel twist of fate on May 5 they learned that they would have to bring the nuptials forward because Lee has developed terminal cancer and has just weeks to live.

After hearing the devastating prognosis, which came almost two years to the day of 34-year-old Amy’s diagnosis, friends and family rallied around to give the couple the wedding they had always dreamed of.

And on Saturday the couple, who have been together for 13 years, tied the knot at the pretty St Lawrence’s church in Swindon Village, Cheltenham.

Their children, Chantelle, Tyler, Codie, and Brandon followed her down the aisle as bridesmaids and pageboys, along with nieces, nephews and Chantelle’s son Riley.
