UA Amazing Community Effort!

Time is of the essence, especially when a young bride-to-be is on hospice care.
Jahaysia Sheffield was diagnosed with osteosarcoma at the tender age of 18. Not too long afterwards, a life-long friend of Jahaysia’s proposed to her, and the community stepped into action to provide a dream wedding; much of it through social-networking.
The Community Hospice, a non-profit, learned Jahaysia had a wish and the organization knew it had the means to grant it through the hospice wish fund. That special wish was to have a wedding, to marry her boyfriend. The non-profit says Jahaysia truly embodied the hospice spirit of living ever day on earth to the fullest, which was shown around the world through her wedding.
Since the non-profit’s wish fund could only donate so much money to the wedding, the community rallied together to help make Jahaysia’s dream come true. Several businesses donated dresses, flowers, photography and a wedding cake. The wedding was pulled together in a week and a half.
“It was beautiful, they had a ton of family and friends that were there and a lot of support,” said Allen Johnson with Glennpeter Jewelers.(1)
The wedding took place in September. I am sorry to say that Jahaysia passed away this month. I think that sadness of the short time she had left, makes the effort that came together for this beautiful bride, all the more powerful.
Sorry. No data so far.
