DALLAS, TX — Surrounded by his hospital family, an oncology warrior at the Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Medical City Dallas married the love of his life, fulfilling the couple’s dream to wed.
33-year old Matthew was admitted to Medical City Dallas with blood cancer in early January and has been undergoing treatment since that time. In front of a socially distanced and masked gathering, Matthew was wheeled into the chapel where he and his bride, Jen, said their vows on March 31. The outpouring of love and support from family, friends and colleagues provided hope and joy to the newlyweds.
Medical City Dallas is committed to excellence always and going above and beyond for patients. Complete with flowers and a cake, the hospital wedding was planned by Matthew’s oncology team.
“Every patient that comes through our doors is treated like our own family,” says Chris Mowan, CEO of Medical City Dallas. “We were pleased to have helped create such a special celebration for Matthew, Jen and their families and we wish them well.”
