This bride was dumped a week before her wedding for the most horrendous reason


This is devastating.

Emily Nicholson was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer at the age of 24.

Following the devastating news, Emily and her boyfriend Jamie decided to get married, so they could enjoy what ever time they had left.

However, a week before the wedding Jamie called off the engagement, the morning of his stag.

“Jamie messaged me and said he didn’t want to be with me and he hadn’t loved me for a long time.”

“It was horrendous. He made it very clear that he didn’t love me. I felt it was because of the way I looked and what had happened.”

Emily, who was an aspiring model, had gained a significant amount of weight, due to the medication she was on.

“Now I don’t feel anything about him, he hurt me but there’s no point getting upset over it.

“I’ve just had to be strong about it all.”


Her mum Joanne said: “We moved to Australia for a better life.”

“Emily was doing so well, she had her own house and a good job as a bar manager and she was also picking up work as a model and nightclub host.”

“She was vivacious, fun loving and a bit wild. She’s always been a ferociously hard worker.”

“She was blossoming, she loved life and now it’s all gone.”

“When she kept having seizures, we just thought it was stress because she was working so hard.”

“When we went into the doctor’s office and he told us our world just fell apart.”

“I look back and think how did we even get home? I remember breaking down crying, Emily looked at me and asked me to help, and there was nothing I could do.”

“I had no power and everything was taken out of our hands.”
