Mr. Duquette was diagnosed with leukemia three years ago. Following a few rounds of chemotherapy, he developed neuropathy–a numbing across the body. He was confined to a wheelchair, but was determined to walk his daughter down the aisle on her wedding day.
He kept his plan secret and underwent seven months of intensive physical therapy. On the wedding day, he stunned everyone at the outdoor ceremony, especially the his little girl, who cried as she walked down the aisle.
Mr. Duquette was helped out of a wheelchair when the bride appeared. The ceremony was held at Old Orchard Beach in Maine.
The bride asked her father, “Are we really going to do this?” to which he replied, “I’m here aren’t I?”
Mr. Duquette held onto Heather’s arm, and although he stumbled after a few steps, he managed to regain his balance and complete his walk down the aisle.
His amazing performance didn’t stop there, either. After giving the bride away himself, he was able to dance with his newly wed daughter for the “father-daughter” dance at the reception.
