Father Surprises Daughter And Walks Her Down The Aisle

Ralph Duquette is not just fighting Leukemia. He’s a father determined to share one of the most special moments in his daughter’s life: walking her down the aisle on her wedding day.


Bound to a wheelchair from his intensive chemotherapy, his daughter, Heather, understood that it probably wouldn’t be possible for him to walk with her and give her away.

Unbeknownst to Heather, Ralph had been going to physical therapy sessions this summer to help regain his strength and coordination. On Heather’s wedding day, and to the surprise of the entire guest party, Ralph gets out of his wheelchair and walks her down the aisle.

WMTV also reports that Heather and her father shared a father-daughter dance as the reception as well.
