Sad Love story! Terminally ill man, given six months to live proposes to girlfriend – then spends his last days making HER dreams come true

A boyfriend proposed to his girlfriend when he had just six months to live –
then spent the rest of his days making his bride’s dreams come true.
Chris Price, 26, promised to give ‘love of his life’ Ceri, 29, everything
she ever wished for after he was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
The pair had a plush church wedding with Ceri’s four children as the guests
of honour.

Chris then took her and four children Halle, nine, and triplets Evan, Morgan
and Georgia, six, to Disneyland Paris.
And they had only been home a few weeks when he whisked Ceri off to New York
for a weekend of sightseeing and shopping.
Chris then splashed out on the £500 pair of Louboutin shoes – and a £900
Mulberry handbag Ceri had always wanted.

The pair had a plush church wedding with Ceri's four children as the guests of honour 

The loving husband then booked to
take Ceri to Las Vegas for her birthday… but sadly he ran out of time.

Chris died in Ceri’s arms last month
and his funeral was held in the church where the pair had married just six
months earlier.

Heartbroken Ceri said: ‘It was as if Chris wanted to spend his last days
making me as happy as he could.
‘We did such a lot in those last six months.

Chris had proposed to Ceri when he had just six months to live and promised to give her everything she ever wished for
‘He was so positive he never talked about dying, he
just wanted to see me and the children happy in the time he had left.’

The pair had known each other since being teenagers – and moved in together
when romance blossomed in January 2012.
Chris was fit and healthy – and hadn’t been to see his doctor for more than
10 years.
But he started having stomach pains and tests revealed he had cancer of the
oesophagus in April 2012.

Though Chris was given the all clear, his cancer returned a year later

Though Chris was given the all
clear, his cancer returned a year later
Chris, of Merthyr Tydfil, South
Wales, underwent an eight-hour operation where doctors had to remove part of
his stomach because the cancer had spread.
He was later given the all clear but
in April 2013 scans revealed secondary cancer in his liver and lungs.
He was told there was no cure but
chemotherapy could prolong his life. He passed away in January 2014.
Ceri said:

“If my love could have saved him, he would have lived
forever. We packed so much into the short time we had together. His
illness made him live completely in the moment and he taught me to do
the same.
He died in my arms and I felt his last breath. My heart is broken
losing him and I still spray his Aramis aftershave and wear his clothes
to feel close to him. He loved me and took me on with four children as
if they were his own. They loved him so much too.
I have no regrets – we accepted what was going to happen and we
savoured every single second we had together. At his funeral we played
his favourite song Robin S – Show Me Love. That’s all he ever did was
show everyone he met love. I miss him every moment of every day.”
