They Changed Their Wedding Venue to a Hospital Room to Include Her Dying Father

Nickalena Bedwell knew her father, Tom Monk, would probably not live to attend her wedding ceremony, so she moved up the date from June to March — and moved the venue to a hospital room.

Monk had been cancer-free for 25 years and had expected to attend his daughter’s wedding as planned. But then he suffered a pulmonary embolism and went on life support as his organs began shutting down. A week later, Nickalena and Tom Bedwell were wed in his hospital room, racing against the clock to share this special day with her father. Two days later, Monk was taken off of life support.
