Tell Us Why You Should Win: We set a wedding date for September 28th of this year but life had other plans. On March 15, 2019, my Fiance Dustin, became paralyzed over night. Later in the day he was diagnosed with Guillain- Barre Syndrome. (GBS) A rare disorder where your immune system attacks your nerves. Only we had no idea how severe Dustin's case was. He spent several weeks intubated in Intensive Care, followed by several months of rehabilitation. He received daily physical and occupational therapy to relearn how to do normal day to day tasks. We were so very scared that he would never be the same again. While he has improved and healed over these last few months, we sadly had to save our wedding date for a later time. If this year has proven anything, its that we can overcome anything together. This difficult time of our lives has made us stronger as couple and even stronger partners for life. It would be a great honor to win this giveaway.
