Jason says Jolene's love and patience set him on the road to recovery
A groom-to-be who became bedridden and almost died has learned to walk so he could marry the woman who nursed him back to health.
46-yr-old Jason Moss wedded the love of his life 36-yr-old Jolene, praising her for seeing him through a horrible illness that saw him face a 25 per cent chance of survival.
Moss said his ordeal began when he fell ill on a romantic trip to Egypt. He began to vomit, suffered a blood clot and then a major stroke - which left him fighting for life.
He had major surgery to remove part of his skull to ease swelling in the brain but was left paralysed down his left side, unable to speak, walk or look after himself.
After two months in hospital, Jason began intensive daily physiotherapy. As he reached the end of his rehabilitation, he proposed to Jolene.
"We had been through so much together. I had literally seen Jason go through every stage from being a helpless baby again, back to the man I loved.
"When he proposed, I sobbed with happiness," Jolene said.
Jolene's love and patience set him on the road to recovery, Jason says.
"They say love conquers all and I think we've proved that.
"I've seen Jason go from being as helpless as a baby, fighting his way back to the man I love.
"He was insistent that he would learn to walk again in time for our wedding and he has done it. I am so proud of him," Jolene said.
The couple met in their local pub in Wigan five years ago.
