When High School Sweethearts Get Married, It Usually Doesn’t End In A Heart-Crushing Way. Like This.

There’s something different about Leslie Rivera and Daniel Mendez. Sure, they are high school sweethearts in love… but there’s more to the story. Leslie is dying and Daniel refuses to leave her side. So instead of letting the illness defeat them, instead they embraced each other and their love (you may need some tissues).

They made the most of their situation when so many others would have crumbled to pieces. Leslie and Daniel are an inspiration. By looking at her wedding photos, you would never guess that she was terminally ill. Leslie is an angel.
