Man With Terminal Diagnosis Spends Last 6 Months Making His Wife's Dreams Come True

When Chris Price was given just six months to live, he decided to use that time to make his then-girlfriend's dreams come true.

In April 2013, the 26-year-old from Wales, who'd previously battled esophageal cancer, was diagnosed with cancer in his liver and lungs, BBC News reported. Price didn't waste any time before proposing to his girlfriend, Ceri.

Shortly after their August 2013 wedding, Price took Ceri and her four children to Disneyland Paris, where they had the "most magical time," according to WalesOnline. A few weeks later, they were off to New York City for a romantic getaway.

"If my love could have saved him, he would have lived forever," Ceri, 29, told the outlet. "We packed so much into the short time we had together."

Price just wanted to make his wife as happy as possible.

He died in Ceri's arms last month, and his funeral was held in the same church where the couple wed, according to WalesOnline.

"His illness made him live completely in the moment and he taught me to do the same," Ceri told BBC News.

Clarification: This post has been updated to reflect that Chris Price was Ceri's husband when he died.
