Courtney Webb died barely six weeks after her wedding after succumbing to a rare form of cancer
A British bride after fulfilling her final wish of marrying her childhood sweetheart died in his arms while fighting cancer.
27-yr-old Courtney Webb had against all odds, walked down the aisle to wed her fiancé Bill - all thanks to generous donations of £20,000 people who had read her story.
Webb died barely six weeks after her wedding after succumbing to a rare form of cancer.
She had a five-year-old daughter Dolcie with Bill.
Speaking about his wife's death, 27-yr-old Bill said: “She put her head on my chest and fell asleep again in my arms just like she had a thousand times before.
“But I knew this time she wasn’t waking up. I just held her.
“I don’t know how I will live without her but I will always remember the happiest day of our lives and the last weeks before she was taken.
“I can never give enough thanks to the people who made it possible. My Courtney was stubborn, she was brave, she was strong, but most importantly she was happy and she died having done the one thing she wanted most in the world.
“I’ve told Dolcie that the angels have taken her mummy up to Heaven but I will never ever let her forget Courtney or how happy we all were while she was here.
“Courtney’s motto was that she would never let cancer beat her and even in the end she didn’t. She went on her own terms – peacefully, in the arms of her husband.
“In the end she won.”
Courtney and Bill had dated for 11 years and planned to have their wedding by November before tragedy struck.
