Woman With Stage 4 Breast Cancer Has Solo Wedding Photo Shoot


Ever since she was a little girl, Q May Chen from New Taipei, Taiwan dreamt of her wedding day and the wonderful gown she would wear. Fast forward to 2013 when Q May finds out she had stage 2 breast cancer. Luckily, she beat the disease and continued to live life to the fullest.

Families share their experience with breast cancer in this moving video. 

Sadly, BuzzFeed reports that Q May’s cancer returned in 2015, but this time the news was much worse—she had stage 4 breast cancer. Faced with her own mortality, the 27-year-old decided that she would try and accomplish some of her lifelong dreams, including wearing a wedding gown and participating in a wedding day photoshoot.

Since Q May’s single, she decided to go ahead and have the photos taken without a groom. The finished photos of her in a beautiful selection of wedding gowns are a fantastic testament to her strength and determination. She was set on seeing her dreams come true, no matter the obstacles.

In addition to her solo wedding, Q May plans to go on a “honeymoon” to Bali later this year, although she won’t be alone! She’ll be taking her mom with her for company.

    I have a friend who also had breast cancer. She was 3 weeks from dying, and was told to take chlorella. She took 35 supplements per day. She is now recovered and is on a cruise ship. I would recommend that you also try it.
