The day before Valentine’s Day, while pushing around the craft cart at the hospital, Doreen saw a young man, Andrew, with a bald head. She invited him to make a valentine craft while waiting for his treatment. When asking who he was making it for, he responded “my bride.” After months passed, Doreen got to know Andrew as he underwent chemotherapy. One day, as Doreen sat on her deck at her cottage, she could not stop thinking about him.
It was clear that he wasn’t doing so well. Doreen thought of his battle and about all the time he had to spend in the hospital. How could this young couple, so much in love, be robbed of the chance to spend time together outside of this disease?
