How We Met

Mike and I first met in person at Nassau Community College back in November 2011, but before we met in person we met on Eharmony, Mike was a reservists in United States Marines and we both attended Nassau Community College, in Garden City NY. We dated for a year before we welcomed our son Tyler who is now 5 years old. What makes our story unique is really my story when I was 13 years old, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and I underwent 2.5 years of chemo therapy. When I was sick I kept thinking I would never get the chance to fall in love or even get married, but the biggest of all was my entire life from 13 years on, I was told by my doctors that I could never have children. I avoided relationships as I got older because how could I tell a man I could never have children. Well in May 2012, I went to the doctor due to stomach pains and behold I was told I was 8 weeks pregnant and the second I heard my son’s heartbeat I broke down. Our son is my miracle baby. Well fast forward to November 11,2017 Michael took me out for day and was acting really nervous throughout the day but I thought nothing of it, that night he surprised by taking to The Prime in Huntington to celebrate my

15 year anniversary being cancer, it was only after we finished eating did he leave the table and when he came back he got down on one knee, and I was already starting to cry and his words were “the 3 of us have been a family for 5 years but our family won’t be whole until the day we say I do, you are an amazing women, a fighter through and through and that’s where our son gets it from. Will you do me the honor of marrying me?” So here I was from 13-16 years old, thinking I would never get the chance to get married having children to having my miracle baby, being with the man I love with my whole heart for 6 years and getting married December 2018. I believe Michael was sent to me for a reason, he’s given me everything I have always wanted and I can’t wait for the day when I get to say I do and make our family officially whole.

How He Asked

Mike and I met 5 years ago in person at college but we actually met on eharmony. Mike is a marine veteran and I’m a childhood cancer survivor of 15 years so when he finally proposed to me it was something I never thought would happen. 15 years ago, I didn’t know if I would see the next day let alone be 28 years old and have my 5 year old son whom I was told I could never have either. Which is why my wedding is going to be extra special because I am inviting my doctors who saved my life because and they are my family and deserve to be there. That’s the back story now the day Mike proposed to me was November 11th 2017 and he took me out for the day nothing crazy, that night he took me out for my favorite restaurant to celebrate my 15th anniversary being cancer free and after we ate he got down on one knee and said “the 3 of us have been a family for 5 years but a our family won’t be whole until the day we say I do, you are an amazing women, a fighter through and through and that’s where our son gets it from. Will you do me the honor of marrying me? Best part apparently my entire family knew for a year and my friends knew the night before went out to see my best friend who just got back from her honeymoon and they kept saying I was next and I just kept shaking my head no. He took my phone before I went out with them and told them what he was planning and deleted the texts so I wouldn’t see them. And that’s our story. Miracles do happen 12-9-18
