Nonprofit that helps terminally ill to plan weddings coming to Philly

    A non-profit that helps the terminally ill find wedded bliss is coming to Philadelphia.

    As reported on CBSPhilly, Wish Upon a Wedding helps couples facing a terminal illness or serious life-altering event plan and enjoy the wedding or vow renewal they have always wanted.

    Philadelphia president Mark Kingsdorf says local wedding planners and businesses will donate many of the items such as flowers and food and take care of the details. The ceremonies can take place in the home, at a bedside or in a hospice.
