I’ve been missing my dad a lot this week, so this story about Eryn and her father, Steve, really touched me. Steve was diagnosed with a brain tumor while Eryn was planning her wedding. After receiving the news, Eryn moved closer to her family, and despite an overwhelming prognosis, Steve stood determined to see his daughter get married. After undergoing intensive, experimental treatments, he walked her down the aisle at the August 21 ceremony.
“I really didn’t know how he was going to be feeling by the time the wedding day rolled around, but the minute I saw him, his face lit up. I could see just how proud he was to be my father and to be there to give me away,” Eryn said. “I felt like his little girl, and I had my dad back. Best. Feeling. Ever.”
And in lieu of wedding favors, donations were made to the American Cancer Society in each guest’s name. How inspiring is that, friends? xoxo
