Nurses and social workers all chipped in to help create a wedding gown, decorations, cake, punch, and more. Nurses gave Anna a manicure and fixed her hair for the occasion.

Justin and Anna have been together for 3 years, and engaged for 2. They spend much of their time in and out of hospital visits.
