HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — A terminally ill man given only months to live has escorted his daughter down the wedding aisle in Kansas, after his family and friends scrambled to arrange the ceremony.
The Hutchinson News reports Jeff Petty suffers from a cancer called renal cell carcinoma. The disease has spread to his bones and is too advanced for chemotherapy treatment. In June, his doctor gave Petty between two to three months to live.
He walked his daughter Janena down the aisle on Tuesday in South Hutchinson Christian Church.
The wedding was set for next July, but was pushed up after Petty’s family learned of his prognosis.
The ceremony was planned in less than two weeks.
