A 10-year-old American girl married her childhood sweetheart only days before succumbing to acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Emma Edwards, the girl, was diagnosed with the condition in April 2022. Alina and Aaron Edwards, her parents, were optimistic about her recovery. However, in June 2023, they learned that Emma’s sickness had progressed to an incurable level. She died tragically on July 11, 2023.

“We were going for another kind of treatment, and they told us that she probably had days to a week, not weeks to live. We didn’t expect to hear that at all,” Alina told Kennedy News and Media.

Emma’s desire was to marry her fiancé, DJ (Daniel Marshall Christopher Williams Junior). When they were just eight years old, the couple attempted to “marry” at school around lunchtime. Emma’s family and friends banded together to make her dying dream come true. On June 29, a ceremony for the young couple was held in front of 100 guests.

“It had to happen super fast. We threw it together in less than two days; everything ended up being donated,” Alina said of the wedding, which was held in a garden and attended by about 100 people.

“It was so precious, and it came together so well. Her dad gets to say he gave her away. A friend of ours officiated, a friend read a verse from the Bible, and her best friend was maid of honour,”  Alina continued.

Emma was escorted down the aisle by her father in her grandmother’s yard. Their third-grade teacher told them about how they met at school. Everything was given, and the wedding was organised in less than two days. A buddy officiated the event, and another recited a bible text. Emma’s dearest friend served as maid of honour.
