Woman does solo wedding shoot after she finds out she has terminal cancer


When she was younger, 27-year-old Q May Chen always dreamt of what her wedding photoshoot would look like.

But she was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer before she could find a partner with whom to make that dream a reality.

Undeterred, she decided to fulfill her wish anyway — by herself.

Chen, who is from Taiwan, was first diagnosed with stage two breast cancer in 2013.

She was declared cancer-free after receiving treatment, but two years later, she received bad news, that she cancer was back — and had worsened to stage four.

So for her birthday last year, Chen decided to make the photoshoot happen.

"When I was younger, I loved to dress up and always hoped that I would one day be able to do my own wedding shoot when I got married," Chen told news outlet BuzzFeed.

"And so I waited, but then I got sick again...that was when I finally decided that this was something I needed to do."

Chen adds that she will travel to Bali with her mum for a "honeymoon" later on this year.

"I couldn't have known that stage four cancer was waiting for me, but I'm making the most of the limited time we all have," she said.

Mashable has reached out to Q May Chen for comment.
