Doctors had diagnosed 17-yr-old Emma Cosgrove from Cheadle with a tumor in her leg when she was 12 and had undergone numerous treatments in five years.
She was recently told her illness had returned and doctors are unable to treat it.
Emma who has a short time to live has made a bucket list which includes marrying 18-yr-old fiance Dion Dunn whom she’s known from childhood.
To fulfill her wish, friends, family and even strangers contributed some money to the tune of £7,000 for her wedding.
Cosgrove whose other wishes include a Centre Parcs break with her dog Nala and a hotel trip to London to watch The Lion King, has been bowled over by the public’s generosity says she’s been ‘overwhelmed by public’s generosity’.
“I want to say thank you to every single person who has shared and donated towards my go fund me page.
“I can’t even begin to explain how grateful I am and how much I appreciate every single donation.
“This means that I can make some amazing memories with all of my family and friends and I can’t wait to share photos with all of the people who have supported me over the past six years,” She told the Manchester Evening News.
