Carlisle man Joel Gray removes dream wedding from the bucket list

The community has come together to ensure that a man diagnosed with terminal cancer fulfills a wish on wish list to marry his fiancée.

Joel Gray was first diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia T-cell – a rare and aggressive form of cancer – in 2012 when he was just 17 years old, and after years of treatment, he was told twice that he had returned.

He’s hoping to fulfill a range of death wishes and since sharing his story, people have come forward to help the 26-year-old Carlisle man relive the special day he and Jenna Kersey dreamed of.

Almost everything related to the wedding is planned in less than two weeks.

Joel said, “It’s not 100 percent ready – we still need suits, rings and cars.”

But Joel’s future bride is about to try on wedding dresses, his friends continue to raise money to support him in his remaining time, and he is confident that it will be organized on time.

A friend of Joel’s, Joshua Morrison, accepts a 24-hour bike challenge to help.

He said, “I want to do this for Joel and his family, including his fiancée and their family.

“Joel has shown unimaginable bravery and strength in his struggles over the past nine years.

“He deserves the world. We love you, Joel. ”

Joel said, “I and Jenna really appreciate this and would like to thank everyone who participated and even just offered us things.
