Teen Dying of Cancer Gets Final Wish to Marry Childhood Sweetheart With Just Days Left to Live

A teen diagnosed with terminal cancer fulfilled his wish of marrying his high school sweetheart as doctors say he has just days left to live, The Washington Post reports.

Dustin Snyder, 19, was told he had just weeks to live earlier this year after battling synovial sarcoma, a rare form of cancer, for a year and a half.

Snyder has had to undergo numerous surgeries to remove the tumors but they continued to return.

When doctors told him he had just weeks left, he asked his girlfriend to spend the rest of his life with him.

“I love her. She’s been there for me through this whole process,” Snyder said of Sierra Siverio, adding that she “means the world to me. I wouldn’t be able to get through any of this without her.”

Dustin and Sierra married on Sunday in Florida.

“I wouldn’t want to be standing here with anyone else, because you are the love of my life,” Dustin told Sierra at the ceremony.

“Sierra has given me the strength to keep up everything in my life,” he told WTSP.

Dustin said Sierra never left his side after his first surgery.

“That’s when I knew she was the one — and I didn’t want her to leave my life,” he said.
