A wedding that will move you: Woman marries dying groom in hospital

This is one fairytale wedding that will move you: A man who married the love of his life on his deathbed in a hospital in Philippines.

According to a YouTube upload by Hasset Go, Rowden Go Pangcoga and his girlfriend Leizl has initally planned to get married on July 8, 2014, which is also Rowden's 30th birthday.

Together with their adorable 2-year-old daughter, they already had a perfect family.

However, Rowden got diagnosed with stage IV liver cancer in late May.

His one last request? To marry his one true love.

As he was unable to go outside hospital confines, his family brought the church to him and prepared a dream wedding within 48 hours -- all in the hospital.

10 hours after he said his vows, he heaved his last breath and passed away on June 11, 2014 at the age of 29.

According to the video description, Pangcoga is survived by his wife Leizel May, daughter Zakiah Rowzel, mother Lorelei, and brothers Hasset & Hisham.
