Jeannette, PA -- Logan Stevenson, a 2-year-old suffering from a rare terminal illness, died just days after being the best man in his parents' wedding.
Logan was diagnosed with Fanconi anemia, a genetic disease that often results in cancer. He was also diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia and clear cell carcinoma after doctors found a tumor on his kidney. He was given two to three weeks to live.
His parents, Sean Stevenson and Christine Swidorsky, originally wanted to get married next July. But when they learned Logan had only a couple of weeks to live, they moved the wedding up so he would be able to participate. After a story about Logan ran in last Wednesday's Tribune Review, the couple was flooded with donations, from wedding services to gifts for Logan. The wedding was planned in a week.
The couple married on Saturday, August 3. Swidorsky carried Logan, who was wearing a tan pinstripe suit and orange shirt, in her arms down the aisle. Her 13-year-old daughter, Isabella, was a bridesmaid. Swidorsky and Stevenson's 1-year-old daughter, Savannah, was the flower girl.
"This is our dream come true. All our family together and we're all together celebrating, the celebration of my son's life and the celebration of our marriage," Swidorsky told NBC affiliate WPXI Saturday.
Two days later, Logan passed away.
"at 8:18 my son took his last breath in my arms," Swidorsky wrote on Facebook. "Logan passed away im so sad upset and im in disbelief he is with angels and he's in no more pain.no more sickness no more hospitals.we love all of u for all your prayers thank u all for caring god bless u all! And most of all god bless Logan I'll c u in my dreams my son."
