Nicole Hastings says she's always dreamed of having a wedding. The Make A Wish Foundation made her dreams come true this weekend.
Now that doctors say the 17-year-old from the Cleveland area has terminal cancer, it's her dying wish. And, it was fulfilled in Mentor.
Nicole and long-time boyfriend Christian Roberts won't exactly be married, but they exchanged vows in a church commitment ceremony similar to the ones used in same-sex unions.
A traditional marriage would leave Nicole without coverage under her family's health insurance, so a friend came up with the alternative.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation paid for the big day, which will include a wedding party of 16 people and a reception with a lavish dinner, a DJ and a cake.
