A father in China fulfilled the wish of his 4-year-old cancer-stricken daughter, who wished to become a bride, by holding a special "wedding ceremony" in the hospital.
According to a Daily Mail report, the little girl, identified as Yaxin, was diagnosed with an advanced stage of leukemia and could die within two months if she is not treated. Her father, Yuan Dongfang, however, said that he doesn't have enough money for the treatment.
Per local media reports, the heartbroken father said that his family has already spent all of their savings to save the child's life and have even run into massive debts over the past two years.
Dongfang told journalists that he has already borrowed around 400,000 yuan ($58,000) to pay hospital bills but doctors told him that further treatment would cost him approximately another 600,000 ($87,000).
Mr. Dongfang said that his daughter told him that she wanted to be a bride and considering that she won't be able to survive for long, he decided to hold the wedding at Yaxin's ward at Beijing's Boren Hospital. Dongfang acted as the groom of his daughter.
Per the report, the "wedding ceremony" took place on November 17 this year, where Mr. Dongfang knelt down to present a small bouquet of flowers to his daughter, who wore a make-shift wedding costume by wrapping a white towel on the head and another around her waist.
