Just 8 weeks ago, when the rest of us were eagerly preparing for Christmas, Stacey 27 from Doncaster was being diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
After hearing the shocking news her health unfortunately began to deteriorate in such a short space of time, forcing her to be admitted to the Doncaster Royal Infirmary at the beginning of December.
It was during that time on Ward G5 that Stacey and her fiancé Daniel Meachen, who had been together for 10 years and engaged for 8 years, were forced to focus on what was truly important to them in their lives….. their family and their love for each other. It was at that point it all became clear and all they wanted to do was declare their love for each other and be married as they had always intended to do.
Two of Stacey’s nurses, Jo Mann and Wendy Lee (Clinical Nurse Specialists for Gynae/Oncology) wanted to do all they could to help the day be as special as possible for them both. They had heard of a local charity, The Eve Merton Dreams Trust, as they’d helped patients in the hospital before. They took it upon themselves to make contact with them in the hope they could help in any way possible.
“After one phone call to Clynton Johnson, the charities Co. Founder, we had flowers, catering, seat covers, balloons and outfits for the page boy and bridesmaids had all been arranged. We were absolutely amazed by the support we received in such a short timescale and cannot thank the trust enough for all their support. Stacey, Daniel and their children will now have some very special memories to cherish”
Just one week later, on the 7th January 2016, in a room at the Doncaster Royal Infirmary, the couple were joined together in marriage and celebrated their big day surrounded by family & friends.
Stacey was so happy with the day and said:
“The day was everything I could have wished for and more”.
Additional to helping make this wedding dream a reality, the people of Evestrust have also given the family a special day of their choice to look forward to, and they have chosen flamingo land.
All we can say is a big thank you to all those involved at the Eve Merton Dreams Trust. This really was a Dream for all involved x
