Florida teen fulfills dying wish, marries high school sweetheart

Teen with terminal cancer weds high school sweetheart

Teen with terminal cancer weds high school sweetheart

Dustin Snyder, 19, said he wanted to spend whatever time he has left wedded to his girlfriend Sierra Siverio.

Snyder, a Valrico, Florida, resident, is now under hospice care after being diagnosed with synovial sarcoma, a rare form of cancer, a day before his 18th birthday. With little time left to live, he and Sierra Siverio planned a wedding in four days, WTSP-TV reported.

A national fundraising drive, launched by family, friends and neighbours, brought in $39,567 which allowed them to pay for their dream wedding.

Snyder is battling terminal cancer and has been given just weeks to live. "That's when I knew she was the one and I didn't ever want her to leave", said Dustin.

Dustin first met Sierra in Middle School, and they started dating only two years ago.

A Florida teenager with terminal cancer fulfilled his dying wish on Sunday and married his high school sweetheart after the local community rallied together to put together the special day.

The young couple posted pictures and videos from his treatment in hospital.

They were able to organise a wedding under a week, with people stepping in to offer help and donate items from the wedding dress to flowers and food.

Snyder's family says that any extra money raised that was not used for the wedding will be "going for the cost for when the day comes for Dustin to be at rest".

"I feel fantastic, this is the most special day of my life", Dustin said at his wedding.

After the ceremony, he went straight into a hospice, according to People magazine. "Ever since he said that I've been by his side".
