Help Mikayla and Demi with their dream wedding

Mikayla and I have been together for 6 years, engaged for 2, and had been planning to spend the rest of our lives together. Mikayla is a double lung transplant patient of 10 years. She was transplanted suddenly when she was only 15 years old. She has spent most of her 24 years in and out of hospital. The last 8 months have been especially worse.

On Friday, the 12th of February, 2021 at 11am, we were brought into a meeting with Mikayla’s lung team, GI team, nutritionist and others to discuss Mikayla’s health. There had been ongoing discussions between the teams for several months about what they were going to do to fix her problems. We sat there as they told us there is nothing more they can do for her and that she has only months left to live.

My heart broke into a million pieces.

When asked in the meeting what Mikayla wanted to do before her time, she looked at me, smiled and grabbed my hand. I knew straight away what we both wanted and needed.

Unfortunately with such short notice, Mikayla and I don’t have the funds to make our wedding dream come true.

We have both wanted and planned for this occasion for years and are completely devastated to know that we are in our final moments. We would like to spend this time with our family and close friends to celebrate us and our time together.

If you would like to help us with our special day, please feel free to donate, but don’t feel obliged. We greatly appreciate your time and kindness.

Mack and Dem xx
