Corey Cunningham was working for an oil and gas refinery in St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands in October 2019 when he had a seizure on the job.
When a palliative care physician asked the 45-year-old who he wanted to be his medical power of attorney, Cunningham responded that he had bought a diamond ring and had planned to marry Evans.
About an hour before the ceremony began, Evans found out Cunningham was ready to enter hospice care.
This is not the first time a wedding has taken place where one half of the couple is entering hospice care.
In 2017, a 28-year-old woman with terminal cancer married her longtime boyfriend while in hospice care.
