Hospital throws impromptu wedding for patient awaiting heart transplant: ‘Life’s too short’

Love waits for no one — not even those waiting for heart transplants.

While most don’t imagine their wedding taking place in a hospital, one England couple couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere else.

Liam Hanrahan, 31, has been waiting for a heart transplant at Royal Papworth Hospital in Cambridge since mid-January, the hospital said in a news release.

A biventricular assist device is helping support his failing heart, keeping blood flowing around his body. As such, he’s unable to leave the building without risking his life.

Instead of waiting an unknown amount of time to marry his fiancée, Sarah Cousins, the hospital organized a wedding ceremony for them on Feb. 27.

They said “I do” in the same hospital room they got engaged in.

The hospital shared a heartwarming video of Cousins, 32, walking down the “aisle” and into Hanrahan’s hospital room with one of her children by her side.

Cousins’ two children — Leon, 10, and six-year-old Lyle — were there to make their day even more special.
