They Knew It Was Going To Happen. But Just 12 Hours After Their Wedding Was Heartbreaking.
Becky Swales is a loving wife and mother that was diagnosed with cancer four years ago. She fought hard against breast cancer, but in 2013 her health began to fail. She was losing.
That’s why her three daughters decided to do something amazingly loving and selfless for their mother before she passed away.
Sarah, Kaylee and Jodie Swales – aged 19, 21 and 22 – all married their fiances on the same day.
With their mother’s worsening condition, they wanted to make sure she was there to see their wedding days.
Becky attended the last-minute wedding, where tears, hugs and kisses were shared.
Only 12 hours later, knowing that her daughters were happily married, she passed away.
“It’s kind of bittersweet,” Jodie Swales told FOX5 before the ceremony. “We are happy that she’s here, but this will probably be the last big thing that we do with her.”
This photo was taken before Becky’s cancer diagnosis. She and her daughters were very close.
Chemotherapy was successful at first for Becky, but then doctors discovered that the cancer spread to other organs like her liver.
Her husband of 25 years has no idea how he will be able to move on without her.
Even at the end, Becky showed strength and love. She posted a final message to her Facebook page that her family would hold in their hearts forever:
“I thank God for waking me up every day. I have such a great support system.”
“My loving husband, my three beautiful daughters and my Mom have stood by me every step of the way. I can’t say enough about what a blessing that has been.”
