      Michigan woman with cancer has wedding wish granted

      A Flint woman who has battled cancer for five years has had her wedding wish granted.

      FENTON, Mich. (AP) - A Flint woman who has battled cancer for five years has had her wedding wish granted.

      Jennifer Hutcheson married longtime boyfriend Allen Korth at a home in nearby Fenton on Sunday.

      The ceremony was to have taken place outside, but the Detroit Free Press reports the heat became too much for Hutcheson, so the proceedings were moved indoors.

      According to The Flint Journal, the new bride wore a flowing white gown and veil, and her wheelchair was adorned with a glittery sign that read: "Just Married 7-6-14."

      The wedding was organized by the Michigan chapter of Wish Upon a Wedding, a nonprofit that puts on such events for couples when one-half is terminally ill.

      The 30-year-old Hutcheson was told in February that she had two to six months to live.
