Recently, our Van Cleve Bridal family heard about a special bride in the community that has been in the battle of her life.
Not too long ago, Melissa Gormley young, seemingly healthy woman was 16 weeks pregnant when she received the news that would change her life forever. Nothing could have prepared Melissa or her boyfriend Dave to hear those three words “You Have Cancer”, or for the difficult journey ahead of them as they fought for both Melissa and the health of their baby. Diagnosed with Cervical Cancer Melissa was working full time, getting multiple cancer treatments and moving forward with life. Fortunately, Team CMMD Foundation was there to assist Melissa, bringing her some comfort and relief during her journey.
Grab a box of tissues as Melissa shares her story. And, stick around for the surprise ending!!
The Team CMMD Foundation website says:
“We come from all walks of life, but we have a common mission: fighting cancer.” And that could not be more true. A few weeks ago Van Cleve Bridal with Team CMMD Foundation, and The Sanctuary Salon and Spa had a little surprise for Melissa. To see the amazing surprise we had for Melissa follow this Facebook link! It is with a warm heart that we surprised her with the wedding gown of her dreams so she could begin her Happily Ever After with her future husband and her beautiful daughter “Liv”. Because Melissa and Dave’s wedding is somewhere down the road, Van Cleve Bridal will not be sharing any information or photos of the breathtaking gown Melissa chose for her big day. But keep following our blog as we will be so excited to share photos of the big day! Be sure to visit the Team CMMD Foundation website for more information on their mission and how you can be part of some of the local events to raise much needed money to help fight cancer and offer support to those people battling cancer every day.
We wish Melissa, Dave and Liv much happiness!
