Tuesday's Question of the Day

By: ricderr, 2:53 PM GMT on August 06, 2013

No question, just a touching story...

A 2-year-old boy who was given just weeks to live died just two days after he served as best man for his parents' wedding in Pennsylvania.

Logan Stevenson, who stole hearts across the county when the pinstripe suit-clad child was carried down the aisle by his mother at the afternoon ceremony, died Monday after a long battle with leukemia.

"At 8:18 my son took his last breath in my arms," his mother, Christine Swidorsky, posted on Facebook just before 12 a.m. Tuesday.

"I'm so sad, upset and I'm in disbelief. He is with angels, and he's in no more pain. No more sickness, no more hospitals. We love all of u for all your prayers."

The chubby-cheeked toddler's parents rescheduled their planned June 2014 wedding to marry last Saturday after doctors told them little Logan had just weeks to live.

It took just one week for the young family to plan the ceremony in the backyard of their Jeannette home, where Swidorsky carried her ailing child on her shoulder down the aisle.

The couple wanted their son to see his parents marry and be a part of family photos.

The little boy - who was on several medications - dozed off and on during the ceremony as he sat on the lap of his grandmother, Debbie Stevenson, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

"We're married," a joyful Swidorsky exclaimed after a kiss from her groom, Sean Stevenson, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Logan was diagnosed with acute myeloid lukemia shortly after his birth Oct. 22, 2010. He also had Fanconi anemia, a rare disease that often leads to cancer.
Newlywed Christine Stevenson says having Logan at her wedding was a ‘dream come true.’

He had a stem cell transplant in July 2012, and he underwent surgery last March to remove a tumor-ravaged kidney.

During a Make-A-Wish trip to Disney World in June, Logan was hospitalized when he suddenly fell ill.

He was flown back to Pittsburgh after a stint in a Florida hospital.

Once home, Logan was taken to an emergency room, where doctors found a mass in his remaining kidney - which led to his terminal prognosis.

The parents quickly decided that they needed to rush their big day. Swidorsky's daughter, 13-year-old Isabella Johns was a bridesmaid, and the couple's 1-year-old daughter, Savannah, was their flower girl.

"This was our dream come true," a tearful Swidorsky told the Post-Gazette.
