Bride with Cancer Decided to Celebrate Her Wedding in a Beautiful Way

Bride with Cancer Decided to Celebrate Her Wedding in a Beautiful Way
Mon 25-08-2014

A bride has described why she decided to walk down the aisle bald after a shock cancer diagnosis and chemotherapy treatment left her without hair.

Kindergarten teacher Shannon Jones, 28, from Redding, Connecticut, discovered she had Hodgkin’s lymphoma four months before tying the knot last July.

Although doctors wanted her to put things on hold, Ms Jones went ahead with her nuptials, choosing to wear a head wrap fashioned from her mother's vintage bridal veil instead of a wig.

Mr O'Hara, who is a U.S. Marine, wore his smart gold-buttoned uniform while Ms Jones opted for a classic, strapless white gown.

The bride schedules her chemotherapy appointments around her wedding day so she would feel healthier and have more energy.
