Dying dad vows to live to meet new baby after dream wedding to pregnant partner

A dad diagnosed with terminal cancer married his partner of 10 years in a dream wedding.

Scott Lewis, 33, was given the devastating news his illness is untreatable in November.

But since then, kind-hearted strangers and even celebrities rallied round to help the father-of-four’s dream wedding come true – and he’s now married pregnant partner Sara Murray.

Scott, from Wishaw, North Lanarkshire, has now vowed he will stay alive long enough to meet his new baby who is due in May, Daily Record says.

He wed Sara, 27, in front of family and friends at Ranger’s FC’s stadium Ibrox.

It was officiated by the football clubs’ Minister, Reverend Stuart McQuarrie.

Rangers legend Derek Johnstone also attended the ceremony.

The wedding party then moved onto a swish breakfast and reception at a luxury hotel in Glasgow’s southside.

And award-winning comedian Gary Little performed a free set at the reception after reading about their plight.

The couple’s young daughter’s Ellie, seven, Amy, three, and eight-month-old Khloe were flower girls.

Friend Linda Croker, who set up an appeal to raise cash for the family, said: "A great day and it couldn’t have gone better.

"Many thanks to Derek Johnstone for representing Rangers Football Club and also thanks to the members of public and businesses who have helped make this day happen."

Scott, who works for the disabled workforce at North Lanarkshire Council, was given the devastating diagnosis that his cancer was too advanced for treatment.

He said: "I want to make memories with my three girls, see my new baby and marry Sara.

"I need to make sure my girls are looked after once I’m gone."

At the moment he is receiving palliative chemotherapy in the hope it will give him a little longer with his family.

The dad has on his bucket list salmon fishing with his brother, his voice recorded into teddy bears for his children and leaving birthday cards for each child until they’re 21.

The couple said they are touched and overwhelmed.

Sara said: "We just want to thank everyone for everything."
