SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

It was a special day for one happy couple, but it was even more special for the mother of the bride.

Jody Garrett was diagnosed with terminal gall bladder cancer this week.

Her daughter Jamijo Garrett was engaged to be married next June.

But when the family got the news that Jody didn't have much time, they quickly made arrangements for Jamijo to wed at Covenant Hospital so she could see her daughter get married.

The bride and groom tied the knot Friday afternoon.

The family has also set up a benefit fund to help with hospital bills. Donations can be made to the Jody Garrett benefit fund at PNC Bank in Saginaw.
