Terminally Ill 2-Year-Old Serves As Best Man For His Parents' Wedding

Jeanette, PA -

Sean Stevenson and Christine Swidorsky were joined in holy matrimony this past Saturday, in a beautiful ceremony that they have been putting off for the past two years.

"With Logan being sick all the time we thought...we held off. We always knew that he was going to get better," says Sean, who is the groom.

But, doctors say 2-year-old Logan Stevenson isn't going to get better...he has just weeks to live. So, an outpouring of good will led to a hastily planned wedding in a backyard in Jeannette, Pennsylvania.

"This is our dream come true. All our family together and we're all together celebrating the celebration of my son's life and a celebration of our marriage," says Christine, who is the bride.

Donations poured in for the family and the wedding was planned in just a week. They wanted to make sure Logan was around to be the best man.

"Under the circumstances of what the doctor told us, we just decided to go ahead and do it while he was still with us," says Sean.

The pain of having a terminally ill child...the newlyweds are overwhelmed with emotion.

"It's just going to be one of those things you never forget as long as you live," Sean says. "I'm speechless and I'm touched by everybody's thoughts and prayers out there," says Christine.

Logan was born with a rare genetic disorder called fanconi anemia. He was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia and doctors found a tumor on his kidney.
