DEPTFORD TWP., N.J. – A couple who both battled cancer together finally tied the knot after spending 11 years at each other’s side.
Ashley Wood and Kevin Sochanchak of Deptford Township, New Jersey have been planning their wedding for a long time. In 2011, Ashley was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, and their wedding plans were put on hold.
According to WPVI, three years later, Kevin was diagnosed with stage 4 stomach and esophageal cancer. He was given just six months to live.
The couple won an all-expenses-paid wedding, and were at last able to tie the knot.
Kevin said the hope of marrying Ashley helped him get through his most difficult treatments.
