 Woman With Terminal Cancer Gets Ready for 'Fairytale' Wedding

Kirsty Ferris, a 22-year-old from Plymouth, is set for a fairytale wedding this weekend despite being told by doctors that she has just weeks to live.

Kristy is suffering from renal cell cancer, which is not at a terminal stage. City hotel owner Joseph Louei has offered to conduct the wedding free of charge.


Kristy was diagnosed in December after acupuncture and other treatment for back pain failed to provide relief. A MRI scan revealed that she had renal cancer. Doctors feel she has had the condition for the last 2 years and that it has now reached a terminal stage.

Kristy's diagnosis was made just seven months after her father John died of prostate cancer. Her boyfriend Richard Bare proposed to Kristy minutes after learning she had cancer. The wedding is due to take place on Sunday.
