Listen to Chalita’s Inspiring Story.
After more than 15 years together, Chalita and her high school sweetheart are finally tying the knot. But her tears of joy quickly turned into tears of despair when her grandma collapsed the next day while planning the wedding.
Chalita’s heart broke at the doctor’s news. Her grandma was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. She only had at the most, 3 months to live.
Chalita’s heart sank at her request. Her grandma was so much smaller than her, while she was more on the plump side.
To make matters worse, the beautiful gold-embroidered gown had been hand-sewn by her grandma almost 70 years ago.
