Couple weds in room where son treated for cancer

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio couple who married on Christmas Day decided to share their vows in the hospital room where their 4-year-old son, Billy, is being treated for cancer.

Sarah Lewis and William Cramer say over the years they made other wedding plans that fell through.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1vvrZEY) the timing then worked out for Thursday's wedding at Akron Children's Hospital with relatives in town and Cramer's uncle available as a minister. Lewis and Cramer live in Mogadore, in suburban Akron.

Hospital workers prepared quickly for the wedding. Relatives including the couple's other children, 2-year-old Mason and 1-year-old Delaney, jingled bells from the back of the room.

Doctors say Billy appears to be beating his neuroblastoma cancer.
