JEANNETTE (KDKA) – A Westmoreland County toddler battling a terminal illness with only weeks to live, played a special part in his parent’s wedding over the weekend.
The story is touching people not only in our area, but across the nation.
As Sean Stevenson and Christine Swidorsky exchanged vows, the words, for better, for worse, in sickness and health had special meaning.
The couple’s son, Logan, was the best man in the backyard wedding.
Sean and Christine wanted their son to be there for one of the happiest and most memorable days in their lives.
They bumped up the wedding date over a year and friends, family, even strangers, pitched in to pull the whole thing off in about a week.
“All the people that donated stuff, it’s just been wonderful. The community, the Pittsburgh area, I mean everybody, I just can’t thank you enough,” Stevenson said.
“It meant a lot to us. This is our dream come true. All our family together and we’re all together celebrating. The celebration of my son’s life and the celebration of our marriage,” Swidorsky said.
Logan’s story has touched the hearts of people all over the region and across the nation.
The story was also featured on “CBS This Morning” with Norah O’Donnell, Gayle King, and Charlie Rose.
Logan faces a tough fight, but he won’t have to fight alone.
The family has set up a fund to help pay for Logan’s medical bills.
If you’d like to help, you can donate at any First Commonwealth Bank Branch. The fund is named Carnival for Cancer in care of Logan Stevenson.
