SALEM, Ore. (KOIN) — Sherri West was a proud mother of the bride when she saw her daughter get married on February 1.
She was suffering from a terminal illness and was confined to Salem Hospital. But oncology nurse Laura Peterson put together a wedding inside the hospital so West could take part.
Her daughter, Sarah West, and her groom Ethan happily agreed to the plan.
Peterson helped put the whole wedding together in three days and found donors for flowers, a wedding dress, a photographer, hairstylist, makeup and music.
The West family allowed Salem Hospital to videotape the ceremony. Now, after a few months, the video and story were released by the hospital.
Sherri West died two weeks after the wedding.
