A 30-year-old woman from Colombia had her dream of being a bride come true when she married her long-term love in the hospital, a few days before her death.
Estefany Torres Vera (30) and Duvan Yefren Pabon met at a mall nine years ago, and have been together ever since. They have a seven-year-old son and always wanted to get married but were unable to do so due to their financial situation.
Estefany was unfortunately diagnosed with cancer, and was hospitalised in 2020 as her health deteriorated. Still wanting to marry the love of her life, Estefany and Duvan planned an impromptu hospital wedding.

The pair married in Estefany’s hospital room on September 11. The bride wore a white dress and tiara for their nuptials. They livestreamed the wedding so that their family at home could still attend virtually. Local police organised a brass band to play outside as the bride was wheeled into the room.
“We did not want a painful goodbye, we wanted a joyful one. This gave Estefany the happiness she deserved,” the bride’s sister Julia Andrea Torres Vega said.
The bride sadly died on September 13, just two days after her dream wedding.
