Carolina and Erick first met nine years ago at a friend’s party shortly after she and her three children had moved from Florida to New Jersey. They immediately hit it off and began dating. It wasn’t long before things became serious and they welcomed their first child together. For the past seven years, Carolina and Erick have been raising their children, enjoying life and creating the foundation for an incredible love story.
The past year, on Carolina’s birthday, the couple received some disheartening news. Weeks earlier, Carolina had felt a lump in her breast and took the necessary precautions to have it checked out. Unfortunately, she was given a diagnosis of triple negative breast cancer. She underwent a mastectomy, reconstructive surgery and an aggressive chemotherapy regiment.
She remains on oral chemotherapy and is fighting to beat cancer with Erick always by her side. This past Valentines Day, he surprised her with an engagement ring.
We were thrilled to hear Carolina and Erick’s story and are excited to grant them a beautiful day with their family and friends. The couple will marry on October 4, 2018 at the Rock Island Lake Club. We absolutely could not do what we do without the many incredible wish granters who have volunteered to help. Thanks to you all!
