On August 20th, 2016 there was a fundraiser held in my benefit, put on by my boyfriend’s family. There was a lunch and a silent auction with over $15,000 in donations from our surrounding towns businesses. I have Stage IV Glioblastoma, which is a malignant brain tumor. Michael and I have been together since I was a junior in high school with a year break. During the middle of the auction they asked me to come up on stage, which I figured was just to introduce me to everyone in the audience. Then, Michael grabbed the microphone and I was utterly confused. He started talking about us and my fight, and then it clicked. The water works began to flow. He got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. I had not even the slightest idea that, that was going to happen. I was taken by complete and total surprise. But, it was by far so beyond special and perfect. Hands down the best day of my life. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
