A wedding to defy death

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) — Jessica Keenan tried on wedding dresses in a fancy Beverly Hills boutique, about 100 miles from the Santa Barbara, California, clinic where she gets blasted with chemotherapy once a week.

Keenan is 34 years old and battling Stage 4 breast cancer with faith, hope and a charity called the Dream Foundation, which helps terminally ill adults.

“You get a diagnosis and you never know how short your time is,” Keenan said. “I chose to believe there is going to be a cure. You still carry those dreams of getting married, having a kid.”
