Dear Friends of The Brides’ Project, we have another dress in the shop for a soon-to-be-bride, and this one is graced with a special message of hope and love:
I battled Leukaemia when I was just 3 years old, and am a proud survivor. At the height of my cancer, my parents never thought they would get the chance to see me walk down the aisle. But thanks to the amazing work done in the cancer research field, here I am today, married for almost 8 years now and with two beautiful sons. Of course, when I learned that I could donate my dress to a charity that supports cancer research, I knew that that was what I must do with my own dress.
… I wanted to send a couple of photos to go along with the dress. I hope another lucky bride will get a chance to love this dress, just as I did on my wedding day.
Shawna, thank you for sharing your dress and your story with us and our readers. You are a living reminder of why The Brides’ Project exists! We hope there will be no need for a shop like ours in the future once cancer is cured, but until then we will continue to serve the community. With your help, we can do it!
