Courtney and Theresa (Tess) first met online just over five years ago. They wrote to each other for three months before deciding to meet in person. At the time, Courtney lived in Wisconsin, so Tess drove there from OH to meet. The meeting went so well that she decided to stay, for good. After living in Wisconsin for a while, the couple moved back to OH to care for Tess’s ailing mother. It was around that time that Tess began to experience some troubling health problems of her own.
After being hospitalized for a very painful kidney stone just last spring, a CT scan of her kidney revealed nodules on her lungs. Under the advisement of her doctor, Tess underwent some extensive testing, including a mammogram. Sadly, she was diagnosed with stage four triple positive breast cancer that had spread to her bones. She has endured an extensive amount of treatments, including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation and continues to fight for her life, with Courtney always by her side. Wish Upon a Wedding has loved getting to know these sweet ladies and cannot wait to grant their life-long wish for a wedding.
