Hospital Wedding: Staff Throws Nuptials For Cancer Patient (VIDEO)

A cancer patient's dream to get married has come true.

David Redmond, a patient at Truman Medical Center in Kansas City, married his girlfriend, Cheyenne, on Friday in a ceremony hosted by hospital staff. Local news station KMBC reported that despite Redmond's worsening condition, Cheyenne and their two-month-old son, Dayvon, have stuck by Redmond's side.

"You and Dayvon are the reason I wake up in the morning, try to keep on fighting," Redmond said.
