Video of Cancer patient gets married before dying uploaded in Youtube


A very touching Wedding video was uploaded on Youtube just recently.  It was a 3-minute video of a cancer patient and his girlfriend, taken only hours before he passed away.

Youtube user Hasset Go uploaded last June 18 the video showing a very touching wedding ceremony which seems to be taken inside a hospital.

"Early this year, Rowden and Leizl decided to get married on July 8, 2014, Rowden’s 30th birthday," Hasset said in the description of the video. "Together with their adorable 2-year-old daughter, they already had a perfect family."

Rowden was diagnosed with stage IV liver cancer in May according to Hasset, and his brother’s last request was to marry Leizl.

"After 12 hours of preparations, his dream was fulfilled," he said. "Unable to take him outside the hospital, we brought the church to him."

In his Facebook page, Hasset thanked the Philippine General Hospital in Manila for preparing his brother’s needs for two weeks, and for being cooperative in granting Rowden’s last wish.

The wedding video struck 180,000 views as of posting, showing friends and family of Rowden and Leizl attended the ceremony.

Leizl wore a beautiful white wedding dress and went to the hospital to exchange vows with Rowden while he was in bed.

On June 11, only 10 hours after the wedding, Rowden died at the age of 29.

May his soul rest in peace.
