Mansfield couple Erick Denizard and Jennifer Brennan, who have set up a Go Fund Me account to pay for their wedding after Denizard's diagnosis with Pancreatic Cancer, will get their dream wedding at the end of the month, according to the Sun Chronicle.
Denizard has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer that has spread to other parts of his body, including the lymph nodes and blood stream. He was given six month-to a year to live and started an treatment that may extend his life a year longer.
The couple is a little over halfway to their $60,000 goal, which will pay for treatment, their wedding, and to take a trip with Jennifer's son, so the three can spend time as a family.
Brennan had begun canceling reservations for the wedding, set for August, when her photographer, Shannon Grant, offered to shoot the event for free, according to the Sun Chronicle.
Grant then wrote a blog post urging other businesses in the wedding industry to pitch in and from there, makeup artists, DJs, bridal shops, wedding cake bakeries and florists began offering their services to the point where the couple had to choose between vendors.
The wedding is scheduled for Jan. 24 at the Willowdale Estate in Topsfield.
