This is a story that has touched me deeply, and I hope that you can keep reading on.
Being a Cyprus Bride myself I joined a group of lovely ladies on facebook group called "Cyprus Brides The Next Chapter" which is where I first learned about Fleur & Chris, you can read their story below.
FLEUR & CHRIS
"Chris and I met in Nov 2008 through a single parents holiday club, so smitten was he by my northern charm he drove the 240 miles to take me out for a meal.
We got engaged a few months later as we already knew then that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. We spent the next few years bombing it up and down the country to see each other, and then he finally moved up north in Nov 2010.
Our Cyprus wedding in Oct 2012 was the best day of our lives. I know that sounds like a cliché but it really was, marrying my best friend and soul mate. We were starting on a new chapter in our lives and couldn't wait to start to fulfil all our hopes and dreams.
After only 7 months of this new chapter, things changed. Chris became poorly with a cough that he couldn't shake and after 3 weeks of tests he was diagnosed with advanced Germ Cell cancer.
Initial treatment of chemo at The Christie hospital showed Chris was fighting back, but our happiness was to be short lived as the cancer soon became resistant to the chemo and the prognosis changed to terminal.
We made a decision then that we wouldn't waste a minute of our precious time together feeling sorry for ourselves, that's not to say we haven't cried, or cry now.
Chris believes he has been dealt this hand so that someone, somewhere doesn't have to be parted from their loved ones. 'That someone could be a child and I'm taking this for them.' he says, such is his army, band of brothers mentality. So we choose to 'live' with cancer, and we have lots of living to do.
Our charity ball is our way of giving something back to all the amazing people who have helped us, our amazing family and friends, the incredible team at The Christy hospital who have looked after Chris and Cancer research UK.
It is Chris' last wish that more research can be done so others can be cured of this cruel disease.
Chris has had 43 years of life, and I have been lucky enough to have known and loved him for 5 years, and for that we are truly blessed."
