Video of the Week: A Deathbed Wedding

Theirs was not an ordinary wedding, but then there was nothing ordinary about their love story either. Rowden Go Pangcoga and his fiancee, Liezl, planned to have their wedding on July 8, his 30th birthday. But in May, Rowden was diagnosed with liver cancer and was deteriorating fast. Bedridden and considerably weakened, he asked that the wedding push through on June 11 at the Philippine General Hospital where he had since been confined.

And so it did. Liezl, in a proper wedding gown, walked with their two-year old daughter, Zakiah, towards the smiling Rowden lying on his hospital bed. Family members, all dressed up, surrounded the couple. Ten hours later (some reports say it was 12 hours), Rowden passed away.
