There is a reason why the words ‘in sickness and in health’ are part of most wedding vows. This is once again underlined by this love story between Jillian Hanson and Max Allegretti. After a rough period of countless chemotherapies, treatments and tests, the couple decided to do something special.
Life is unpredictable. So it’s important to cherish your loved ones and spend time with them, whatever happens. But when Jillian was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 25, she thought she had to offer her boyfriend Max a sort of way out. She knew that it would become an unbelievably difficult and overwhelming time. She was sure that the fight against cancer would be a painful trip.
“When he was with me after I was diagnosed, I told him that this would be a rough time”, she said. So before all hell was to break loose, she offered Max a way out. Not knowing what Max had in store.
