In a brave statement a couple “laughed in the face of their troubles” on their wedding day. 

Joan Lyons of Liverpool, England decided to shave her head at her reception for her new husband, Craig who has terminal cancer.

The couple, who had known each other for 27 years, had their wedding sponsored through a charity called “Gift of a Wedding.”

According to the photographer, the charity “supports couples who are eager to get married as soon as possible due to one of the couple’s poor health.”

The couple encouraged their friends and family to donate to charity during the emotional event.
