BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C.–Not even Stage 4 cancer could keep Kizzie Priestly, 39, from recently marrying the love of her life.

On Thursday, the Goose Creek woman exchanged wedding vows with her fiance, David Hall, at Trident Hospital in North Charleston.

The happy couple was supposed to get married Sunday, but after Priestly’s condition recently worsened, it required her to be admitted to the hospital.

Priestly’s cancer has spread to her lungs, breasts and brain, and doctors say she may not have much time left.

Determined to give Priestly her dream wedding, hospital staff came to the rescue to make it all happen. Although too weak to walk down the aisle, family and friends described the big day as unforgettable.

“We have no words to describe the love shown  for her special day! I was in awe of all the sweet and friendly people I came in contact with,” stated Sydatrice P. Chapman, the bride’s cousin. “From the decorations to the staff helping her get dressed, I was so over enjoyed.”

Sitting in a wheelchair wearing oxygen tubes in her nose and holding a bouquet of pink roses, Priestly said “I do” to the love of her life, a man she met a year ago while working with special needs children.

“Her body is battling cancer, but her spirit can’t be conquered,” the hospital said in a Facebook post that includes video of the event that has since gone viral.
