The Deserving Couple
Dan was a carefree 19-year-old college student when he discovered he had a deadly form of cancer: Hodgkin's disease. Every day for a year, Dan fought for his life, eventually winning the battle. Meanwhile, another vibrant person was struggling with her own cancer diagnosis. Twenty-four-year-old Jillian was just starting chemotherapy for a very rare type of cancer when their paths crossed. What started out as a friendship to help Jillian get through months of intense treatments blossomed into romance. And a few months ago, Dan proposed. Although Jillian has been cancer free for a year, her future is still uncertain.
"There's a lot of questions about her health," says Dan. "We understand that time is really important."
So Colin was off to Cleveland, Ohio to help Jillian's sister plan the surprise wedding shower.
