Sereena Scott of Kent, England is living proof that life can take you where you least expect it.
After a mass the size of a watermelon appeared on her stomach, Sereena went to the hospital, where she received heartbreaking news: She had ovarian cancer at just 32 years old. She and her fiancée of more than 10 years, Robert, 37, made a decision: The couple had previously been saving up for their dream wedding, but knowing it was now unlikely to happen, they decided to hold the ceremony shortly after Sereena's chemotherapy sessions.

"I was granted my dying wish as my body was showing no signs of improvement and I was desperate to become Robert's wife," Serena told Daily Mail. Though her doctors hadn't explicitly told her she was dying, she knew deep down that she was. But then came a twist no one saw coming.
It turned out that marrying the love of her life was exactly what she needed. Soon after the wedding, Sereena's health improved drastically-- and today she's cancer-free. "I feel like the luckiest person alive to have beaten cancer when I was so close to dying."
Last October, the happy couple renewed their vows. And in a stark contrast to their first ceremony, when Sereena had tubes in her throat and had been unable to say "I do," this time around she could recite her vows clearly and walk down the aisle on her own--something they NEVER expected.
