5-year-old Eileidh Paterson from Forres, Scotland, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare childhood cancer, at the age of two. After that, she set about writing a list of everything she wanted to do.

 

5歲的伊莉德.派特森來自蘇格蘭福里斯,她在2歲時被診斷出罹患好發於兒童的罕見癌症「神經母細胞瘤」。此後,她開始寫下想做的每件事。

 

A trip to Disneyland Paris, painting her bedroom pink and visiting the zoo all feature, but perhaps the sweetest of all was her top wish to marry her best friend, 6-year-old Harrison Grier.

 

例如,去巴黎迪士尼樂園玩、把房間漆成粉紅色、參觀動物園等,但最甜蜜的可能是她的第一願望:嫁給最好的朋友-6歲的哈里森.葛萊爾。

 

And he was just as keen. “Harrison has said for over a year that he was going to marry her,” The Paterson said. “He even ‘borrowed’ one of his mom’s rings to give to her.”

 

哈里森也同樣渴望娶她。派特森一家表示:「哈里森已經說了一年多要娶她,甚至向他媽媽『借』了一枚戒指送她。」

 

At the ceremony, Eileidh was walked into the room by her older brother, Callum, to the sound of Disney’s When you wish upon a star.

 

婚禮上,伊莉德在哥哥卡勒姆,以及迪士尼歌曲《當你對著星星許願》陪伴下走入禮堂。

 

The couple met at the end of the aisle and was declared “best friends forever.” Instead of rings, Eileidh and Harrison exchanged St Christopher necklaces to signify the journey they’d been on.

 

這對小兩口在走道另一端相會,接著被宣布為「永遠的摯友」。伊莉德和哈里森沒有交換戒指,反而交換聖克里斯多福項鍊,象徵兩人共同走過的生命之旅。

 

About 30 people attended the wedding and more than 200 celebrated at the party. “It took her hair but it couldn’t take her smile. These are going to be lasting memories.” Eileidh’s mother said.

 

30人參加婚禮,並有逾200人參與慶祝派對。伊莉德的媽媽說:「疾病奪走她的頭髮,但奪不走她的笑容。這些事情將成為永恆的回憶。」
