Earlier this year, Rowden Go Pangcoga decided to marry the love of his life, Leizel. The two had planned a wedding for the summer, but a cruel twist of fate dramatically changed everything.
Rowden was diagnosed with stage IV liver cancer. Unable to leave the hospital, the couple knew they would never have the wedding they dreamed of.
To fulfill his last request to be united with the woman he loved, Rowden’s family and friends worked with the hospital to bring his wedding ceremony to him. After 12 hours of preparation, Rowden and Leizel were married in a beautiful ceremony.
Less than 10 hours later, Rowden succumbed to his disease, leaving behind his wife Leizel and their 2-year-old daughter Zakiah.
Our hearts go out to them, and his family for their loss. At least they’ll have this tender moment to look back on.
