Woman Passes Away Just Hours After Getting Married

Heather Mosher was in the hospital fighting breast cancer when she got married. Sadly, she passed away only 18 hours later.

Heather was dressed in her wedding gown and lying in bed wearing an oxygen mask as she and David Mosher said “I do” at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford. In an apparent display of triumph, the photo shows her raising both her arms in the air.

Sadly, the 31-year-old school psychologist died the next day.

David Mosher told news organizations that the day he planned to propose to her was on Dec. 23, 2016, she was diagnosed with cancer. The East Windsor couple fell in love after meeting at a swing dancing class in 2015. David decided to go through with the proposal that night as they rode a horse-drawn carriage.

“I said to myself, ‘She needs to know she’s not going to go down this road alone,’” he said.

The aggressive form of cancer spread and she had to be put on a ventilator, despite surgeries and chemotherapy. They set a wedding date of Dec. 30, 2017, but doctors urged them to do it sooner and they moved up the date.

Family and friends worked together to get Heather Mosher into her gown and a wig on the day of the wedding. The couple exchanged vows in the hospital’s chapel.

David Mosher said some of his wife’s final words were her vows.

“It was just like surreal because I’m supposed to be exchanging vows to her and here I am saying goodbye,” he sais.

Her funeral was held on the original date of the wedding.
