A young mother has unexpectedly passed away just weeks after having her dream wedding.
31-year-old Sinead Richards was a bright young woman and a mother-of-two who tied the knot with the love of her life back on August 19, 2021.
Just three weeks after getting married to Liam McDonagh, her partner of 12 years, Sinead suddenly passed away from stage four breast cancer.
According to the woman’s heartbroken husband, Sinead first came across a lump in her chest back in 2019 when she was just 29 years old.
Though she visited her doctor to have the lump checked, the GP allegedly insisted she was too young to be suffering from breast cancer. While some tests were allegedly carried out, the medics were unable to spot anything alarming.
After their worst fears were dismissed, Liam encouraged the mother-of-two to get a second opinion and make sure she was really cancer-free. That’s when the doctors carried out a series of tests and discovered that Sinead’s breast cancer had already spread to her other organs.
Just one year after the shocking diagnosis and just weeks after her dream wedding, the young mother succumbed to her illness.
“She was amazing, she was such a lovely person. Nobody she ever met had a bad word to say about her, everyone loved her. It is just so tragic,” McDonagh expressed.
“When we were in the hospital, people would give us a second glance as they couldn’t believe how young we were. She was only 31, we couldn’t believe it.”
To make sure the same thing doesn’t happen to other young women, Liam encouraged everyone to get checked even if they believe they are healthy.
“If her story helps even one more person to get checked, this will have all been worthwhile. She was the most amazing person,” he added.
“I just want to show that this can happen to anyone and urge people to get checked if they ever notice anything.”
