Teen With Bone Cancer Marries High School Sweetheart In ICU
Swift Myers from Tulsa, Oklahoma has been battling cancer, Ewing’s sarcoma, ever since he was in the seventh grade. He’s beaten the disease six times. However, the cancer came back a seventh time and was in induced coma for 11 days but when he woke up, he knew what he wanted to do next: Marry his High School sweetheart Abbi Ruicker.
So on Sunday July 24, 2016 Family, friends and hospital staff arranged for a photographer, videographer and flowers for the special day. Even friends showed up outside the St. Francis Children's Hospital just to get a glimpse of the occasion.
Since marrying Abbi, Swift has been moved out of the ICU and into a regular oncology room. He hopes to go into the radiology field in the future. Abbi plans to go to the University of Tulsa in the fall to study nursing.
