CANONSBURG (KDKA) — There are reports that a Canonsburg teen with terminal cancer passed away this weekend.
Luke Blanock touched the hearts of many earlier this year by marrying his high school sweetheart two months after discovering that his cancer was terminal.
Blanock suffered from Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare bone cancer. According to the Observer-Reporter, the teen died Sunday.
Luke didn’t let cancer keep him from enjoying his life, and marrying the girl he loved, 19-year-old Natalie Britvich.
“They’re young; but their love is mature beyond their years,” wedding planner Ashley Cyprowski told CBS News in February. “They’ve gone through so much that couples twice their age don’t have to go through.”
With an outpouring of support from their small hometown and more than 20 businesses, the couple had the beautiful ceremony they deserved.
