In a story that seems fit to be on television, a Chinese woman who is suffering from a terminal disease has married her boyfriend of eight years on her hospital bed.
Yang Liu, a 39-year-old supermarket cashier from Wuhan, is suffering from breast cancer and has been told that she has five remaining years to live, according to the South China Morning Post. She was given that amount of time because doctors deem it impossible for her to undergo life-saving surgery.

Upon discovering her condition in February, Yang’s boyfriend of eight years, Peng Xin of Sichuan province, applied for a long leave of absence from work so that he could be by her side and take care of her every day.
Although both of their parents never approved of it, Yang and Peng continued their relationship, reported Hubei Radio and Television.
After Yang underwent a month of treatment at the Central Hospital of Wuhan, her condition became more stable. It was then that Peng, who is an airconditioner technician, surprised her with a secretly-planned proposal and wedding.
Peng asked permission from Yang’s doctor if they could hold their wedding ceremony inside her hospital room. After gaining necessary approval, he prepared for the ceremony, receiving help from donations given by the hospital’s doctors and nurses.
They got married later the same day that Peng proposed to Yang. Two of the hospital’s doctors even acted as witnesses at the wedding. Both Peng’s and Yang’s relatives were also present during the ceremony.
The newly-wed bride Yang could not contain her happiness at what happened.
“I have imagined my wedding on many occasions,” said Yang. “I never thought that it would take place in a hospital, but I am just as happy.”
