Linda also states:
“Everyone was jubilant; you could tell everyone was happy for us. Not only are they aiming to save my life, but they also fulfilled my last request”.
Linda’s condition is currently improving. She is now in the Respiratory Care Ward Unit.
The pair is currently enjoying life as a married couple. Linda would like to hold a wedding celebration for their family and friends in the future.
“It is incredible being married. It is always something we have wanted to do, but we never got around to it. We do not know how long Linda has left as she is battling stage four cancer, but we have high hopes”.
Both Marcus and Linda have been in good spirits since the wedding. It has given Linda a new focus.
