18-year-old battling with bone cancer marries his high school sweetheart in ICU

Swift Myers, an 18-year-old high school graduate who is battling with bone cancer asked his girlfriend of two years, Abbi to marry him just after recovering from an 11 days induced coma.

At first, everyone including Abbi thought he was joking because he joked about it in the past. They got married two day after in the presence of their families and friends.

“I thought he was joking at first, he’s always joked about it in the past. And then he said ‘I’m being serious,” Abbi told Huffington Post.

Myers who has been battling with Ewing's Sarcoma on and off for the last seven years met Abbi at the Children's Hospital at Saint Francis in Tulsa, Oklahoma [same place they got married] when they were both visiting a mutual friend who was battling with leukaemia at that time.

Myers hopes to study radiology in college while Abbi wants to be a nurse.
