Heartache of cancer girl who accepts she’ll never experience true love before she dies

Oh so sad and what a beautiful girl. I hope she gets bag loads of cards for Valentines Day, and hopefully there will be a knight in shining armour with a heart as big as hers, Joanna

Angelic in a beautiful, ­flowing white wedding dress, Kathryn Cartwright blinked back her tears and smiled for her adoring mum. It should have been a moment to be cherished, a bride-to-be excitedly preparing for her big day. But 24-year-old Kathryn will never marry, nor even know what it feels like to be in love . The bittersweet moment was just another tick on her bucket list – something she wanted to experience before her life ebbs away. For cancer has cruelly robbed Kathryn of the chance of finding true happiness. Unsure she’d even live to see her 24th birthday last month, she knows for sure her chances of finding Mr Right have faded away.
