CLEVELAND — A terminally ill Ohio man who arrived at his daughter's wedding by ambulance gave her away, from a hospital gurney.
Guests cried and clapped as Scott Nagy took part in daughter Sarah's wedding Saturday at First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Strongsville, The Plain Dealer of Cleveland reported.
A volunteer team of medical professionals helped Nagy escort the 24-year-old bride as groom Angelo Salvatore and the Rev. Chuck Knerem awaited their arrival.
Nagy was diagnosed last year with urethral cancer and has undergone chemotherapy. He has been at University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center since August.
Doctors were uncertain if he would be able to make the wedding, initially scheduled for next year. But with monitor cords slipped under his tuxedo and a tracheal tube attached, he made the trip down the aisle, kissing a grandson who was the ringbearer and giving a thumb's up.
"There was no way he was not going to finish this out," said his wife.
