Scott Nagy promised his daughter, Sarah, that he'd walk her down the aisle.
This past Saturday, the terminally ill Ohio man did just that — thanks to a volunteer team of medical professionals who were determined to help him keep his word.
"It was a promise I made in March, to walk her down the aisle," Nagy tells the Plain Dealer. "She's my princess. This is my definition of walking down the aisle."
Diagnosed with urethral cancer last November, 56-year-old Nagy has been in intensive care at University Hospitals Cancer Center since August.
Sarah Nagy, 24, and her fiancé, Angelo Salvatore, pushed ahead the wedding date — initially scheduled for next year — to ensure Nagy would be able to make it.
After learning of Nagy's determination to walk his daughter down the aisle, nurse practitioner Jacky Uljanic helped him build up his strength and organize transportation, logistics and on-site medical support so he'd be able to attend his daughter's wedding.
