After registering for marriage on November 5, 24-year-old Yu Haining and his 25-year-old cancer-stricken girlfriend, Fan Huixiang, held a wedding ceremony in her hospital ward on Monday, winning crowds of witnesses` good wishes and a lot of teary eyes.
Paramedics send Fan flowers on her wedding day.
Fan and her mother wipe tears from each other`s eyes.
...and from her father`s eyes.
Yu is from Shandong and Fan is from Henan. The two have been in a relationship for five years.
After discovering that she had been diagnosed with terminal cancer in June, he quit his job in Shandong so that he could be with her and look after her.
Fan suffers with Stage 4 Metastatic adenocarcinoma cancer and has only weeks, at most months to live, according to her doctor.
Yu`s father told reporters that he and his wife have never disapproved of the couple`s marriage. They care for her a lot and believe that she is a sensible and devoted girl.
