Hospital grants terminally ill patient’s wedding wish

HOUSTON, TEXAS– When Noah Lathrop found out he didn’t have long to live, he had one wish – to marry the love of his life.

Noah was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer last November, but found out a few months ago that the cancer had spread. He was admitted to Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center in Houston, where doctors told him they had done everything he could. But when Noah told them that his biggest dream was to marry his fiancé, Jade, the hospital staff worked quickly to make the wedding a reality.

“We’ve wanted to get married for a long time, but with everything that’s been happening and the financial issues, we’ve had to wait,” Jade said. “We didn’t think it was possible or feasible to get married, but now it is.”

In less than two days, hospital staff and volunteers coordinated everything from a marriage certificate, a dress, flowers and a cake. Dozens of people gathered in person and via Zoom to celebrate the wedding, which took place in the hospital’s chapel.

“It’s something they’ve always talked about,” said Dr. Charu Agrawal from Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center. “They have had a wedding playlist on Spotify for a long time. They discussed all these different things and always thought they had more time.”

“It’s important because we wanted to do it and this is the opportunity to do it,” Noah said.

Noah was transferred to a hospice after the ceremony, where he died less than a week later. Watch the video above to see Noah and Jade’s special wedding day. Hospital grants terminally ill patient’s wedding wish
