Wedding in a Hospice

There wasn't a dry eye on Thursday, January 15, 2015, during the touching nuptials of Christopher Robinson and Terry Torres at the MJHS Hospice residential inpatient unit on the grounds of Menorah Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing Care. The couple's son, CJ, served as the dashing ring bearer, with a sweet accessory that only a child can pull off...a balloon tied to his little wrist.

Christopher is 25 years old, has metastatic medullary renal cell cancer and is a gunshot wound survivor (five bullets.) Through it all, Terry has been by Christopher's side in sickness and in health.

The wedding was truly family affair. Moms of the bride and groom dabbed their eyes. A proud father of the bride walked his daughter down the aisle. Aunts, siblings, friends and MJHS Hospice staff were thrilled witnesses and cheerleaders. And, hospice music therapist, Charla Burton, provided the wedding's soundtrack.
