Rowden and Liezel: Terminally-ill cancer patient weds girlfriend

Love knows no reason, no boundaries, no distance. In this touching video, a terminally ill man fulfills his dying wish by marrying the love of his life.

The wedding video of Rowden and Liezel Go is not only sweet and heart-warming, but it gets your tear ducts flowing as the couple exchange vows. But as fate would have it, Rowden Go passed away a mere 10 hours later after tying the knot.

Rowden and Liezel had just celebrated their engagement when he was diagnosed with stage IV liver cancer, an aggressive cancer  that doles out a low survivor rate. According to a YouTube post by Rowden's brother, Hasset, Rowden's last request was to marry his "one true love" Liezel.
