Of all the moments in our lives, wedding days often rank among the most fondly remembered. And whether the most treasured reminiscences are of the ceremony itself or of the festivities that follow, they’re often memories that last lifetimes. Toni Carroll and Jesse Welsh may have been hoping that their big day proved special, too, when they tied the knot in May 2019.
However, this particular wedding was by no means a typical one. Yes, while Carroll and Welsh did make their vows in a chapel, they were actually in a hospital in Melbourne, Australia, at the time. Carroll was a patient there, you see, after she had received two serious diagnoses in the winter of 2018.
Shockingly, while Carroll had been pregnant with her second child, she had discovered a growth forming on her neck. Then, after giving birth in December 2018, the mom was given awful news that had the potential to curtail her future: she had the cancer Hodgkin’s lymphoma. And that wouldn’t be the end of her ordeal, either.
