We are beyond excited to present to you the first couple to get their wedding wish granted by A Wish to Wed.

Meet Kim and Andrew!

They met each other in 1988 and have 2 kids. Living the good life together, their lives got shaken up two years ago when Kim was diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer. Ever since, Kim’s time and energy are completely absorbed by the extensive chemotherapy, while Andrew has become the sole provider for the family. Wedding plans were the last thought on their minds. Until they were introduced to A Wish to Wed.

During our screening interview, we asked Kim what makes her relationship with Andrew special. “Trust. I know he’s got my back.” she replied with tears in her eyes, squeezing his hand. But what impressed the AWW-team most, was Kim’s strength and positive attitude towards her battle. “I never ask myself why this is happening to me. I ask myself why not.”

Ovarian_RibbonKim wants to make the most of the time left, and spread awareness to the world about ovarian cancer. That’s why she told us she’d choose teal as the color theme for her wedding.

Shortly after this moving interview, an excited AWW-team delivered the happy message to Kim and Andrew that their wedding wish will be granted.
