Sadly, after putting up a courageous fight, a terminally ill bride lost her battle with cancer, just days after getting married.
Her husband has given an emotional tribute to his "best friend..."
Ashleigh Simrajh first became aware of a "bump" on her leg last year.Concerned, the twenty-three-year-old, from Queensland, Australia, went to the doctors where she was dismissed and told it was merely a harmless "wart."
However, one year later...Ashleigh was given the tragic news that the "wart" was infact a melanoma that had spread around her body.
Ashleigh was devastated.Because, as you will all know, cancer is by far one of the most devastating illnesses a person can have.
Cancer is the result of the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body...And develops when the body's normal control mechanism stops working. Instead of old cells dying like they're supposed to, they instead mutate, forming new, abnormal cells.
The treatment is grueling.
The goal of treatment is to kill as many cancerous cells as possible, all the while avoiding any damage to the normal and healthy cells nearby.
