Bangor hospital staff help terminally ill patient from Penygroes get married
A terminally ill patient has married her partner in hospital.
Staff at Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor helped organise the wedding on Christmas Eve in a matter of days for Duane and Lynda Bailey.
A bay on the hospital’s Ffrancon Ward became a wedding venue for the couple from Penygroes, Gwynedd, who were due to marry earlier this year.
Mr Bailey said: “This was a really special day for us and without the staff this would never have happened.”
As well as decorating the ward, staff even baked a wedding cake for the couple, who have been together for 21 years.
