Terminally ill groom fulfills last wish, dies 10 hours later
By Jay Dillon
Philippines — A woman married her dying groom hours before he passed away in his hospital bed. Rowden Go Pangcoga and Leizel May had been together for several years and had a two-year-old daughter. Earlier this year they set a wedding date-- July 8th, coinciding with Rowden's 30th birthday. However, in May, Rowden was diagnosed with stage IV liver cancer. His health deteriorated rapidly, and he was confined to the hospital. Rowden's dying wish was to marry Leizel in front of friends, family and his daughter. So after 12 hours of preparation, they planned a wedding and brought the church to him in the hospital. He passed away on June 11, less than 10 hours after saying his vows.
