A Moving Story of A Cancer Patient Marrying His One True Love


In the midst of my anguish, frustrations, fears and anxieties, last night I stumbled upon this and moved me. Everyone has their struggles, big or small and I am thankful for mine. I have always been asking for miracles on my end despite the miracles I already have. I have been over thinking and too consumed by it, too anxious for something that’s not there and this video got me back on track.

A story of Rowden and Liezel. Made me cry bucket loads of tears last night and reminded me of how blessed I am. I have always been aware of it. Gah. Tears. Tears everywhere. Every where. :/


Here’s the story of Rowden and Liezel from the description of the video itself.

Early this year, Rowden and Leizl decided to get married on July 8, 2014, Rowden’s 30th birthday. Together with their adorable 2-year-old daughter, they already had a perfect family.

Then a twist of fate, Rowden got diagnosed with stage IV liver cancer in late May. His last request was to marry his one true love. After 12hours of preparations, his dream was fulfilled. Unable to take him outside the hospital, we brought the church to him. It was like a heartbreaking fairytale.

Rowden Go Pangcoga, at the age of 29-years-old, passed away on June 11, 2014. Less than 10hours after he said his vows.

He is survived by his wife Leizel May, daughter Zakiah Rowzel, mother Lorelei, and brothers Hasset & Hisham.
