Stories like this makes one believe in the power of true love. In a beautiful act of solidarity, Joan decided to cut off her hair after she walked down the aisle with her new husband.
When bride to be Joan found out that her fiancée Craig had Pancreatic Cancer, she was devastated. With their wedding day coming up in a couple of weeks, she tried her best to help Craig in any way she could. But in a display of undying love and support, she decided to shave her head at her very own wedding reception in Liverpool, England.
According to Daily Mail, Craig and Joan Lyons story have known each other for over thirty years, but unknown to Joan, Craig had always been in love with her. “I fell in love with her as soon as I set my eyes on her when we were 14,” Craig said.
18 months ago he decided to tell her how he really felt and the couple just got married. They had planned to marry later in the year but they decided to bring the date forward when Craig’s pancreatic cancer became terminal.
Looking at their wedding photos, one can see the look of surprise and appreciation on Craig’s face when Joan announced her decision to shave off her hair.
“It was obviously the first time I had seen Joan without her hair and she looked beautiful, absolutely stunning,” Craig told the Daily Mail. “She is the woman of my dreams.”
Joan donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust, a charity that creates wigs for children who’ve lost their hair during cancer treatment.
If this isn’t true love, I don’t know what is.
