    Wedding planning with cancer

    My boyfriend proposed to me two weeks go. I feel silly planning a wedding during chemo therapy, but I feel like it is also silly to postpone things based on a million what ifs and delay living my life because of fear. I am living at home now, so I have a lot of help from my family. I was just curious if anyone else has experienced this and if they have any advice on how I can make this as unstressful as possible. I will probably also need a wig, since I don't know how much my hair will grow back by the spring. Any suggestions on really nice wigs?

      Thank you all so much for all your support! I can't tell you how much it means to me to hear validation across the board. There have been many sacrifices that I have had to go deal with being such a rare young ovarian cancer patient, so it is really fun to plan something that is normal. I am so lucky to have such an amazing fiancé, Shane, that doesn't care about things like hair and stuff lol. Sorry, no family members in Indiana but he has a brother in Western Virginia haha.

Take it one step at a time and put your trust in those that you love and who love you to help you get ready for a beautiful wedding day. Congratulations and I wish you lots of love and happiness!
