The terminally ill bride-to-be tragically dies of cancer a fortnight before the wedding

A terminally ill bride-to-be died of cancer just a fortnight before their fairytale wedding.

The mother of Gemma McGowan from Paisley was due to marry the sweetheart Steven Murie on June 11th after a fundraiser raised thousands.

However, the 29-year-old tragically passed away on Wednesday (May 26).

Gemma had a very rare cancer of the nasal cavity and only got a few months to live after being diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in May last year.

Despite months of treatments that included radiation therapy, immunotherapy, and life-changing surgeries that required surgeons to remove her eye, she and her partner were heartbroken told that nothing could be done.

The wedding was brought forward to next year due to the condition of Gemma, with Wedding Wish Makers asking retailers to provide the full range of services, including wedding cars and outfits for the bridesmaids.

They managed to win a three-tier cake, piper and humanistic celebrant.

In addition, a total of nearly £ 3,800 in donations were made for the ceremony at the Dalmeny Park Hotel in Barrhead and other fees.

Wedding wish-makers announced Gemma’s death on Facebook and said: “We write these words with a heavy heart, but unfortunately Gemma passed away yesterday.

“Our thoughts are with Steven, Arran and all of their friends and family at this difficult time.

Gemma’s mother, Lorraine McGowan, previously said her daughter struggled with “incredible strength and bravery,” according to The Mirror.

She said, “It was so hard to see her going through what she’s got.

“I don’t know how she dealt with it, but she was so strong through it all.”

Gemma had watery eye issues just a month after telling her family about her pregnancy.

After visiting the optician, she was told it was likely a blocked tear duct and was referred to the ophthalmologist.

However, her first appointment was canceled at the start of the pandemic in March.

She was eventually seen and diagnosed with a blocked tear duct.

But Gemma’s condition worsened in the weeks that followed, with the swelling becoming so severe that her eye had slipped completely to one side.

Doctors then ordered scans of her eye and discovered the tumor.

The fundraiser money will now go to Steven and the couple’s baby, Arran.
