An emotional photo of a bride holding the hand of her cancer-stricken father has moved the hearts of netizens since it went viral on Facebook earlier this week. The post garnered approximately 46k reactions and 18k shares after it was posted on 26 March (Tuesday).
According to Jessie Tesoro, owner of Happy Smile Studio, the photo was taken by their photographer, Biboy Sajulga, during the wedding of Kris and Herlyn Dumaguin, who are from the Philippines.
Jessie Tesoro said, “As far as I know, the bride’s father has stage 4 brain cancer.” “The day before the wedding he was so excited to walk his daughter down the aisle. Unfortunately, on the same day, he collapsed.”
According to AsiaOne, Tesoro went on to say that a car was parked in front of the church entrance on that day. Before the bride walked down the aisle, she went to her father, kissed him and said, “Pa, I’m going to get married now, ok?”
A father-daughter dance was also planned for the wedding reception. However, this did not happen. Instead of her father dancing with her, the bride’s mother took his place.Bride, cancer, Father’s Hand, Holding, Stricken
