Valentine’s Countdown Day 1….Love Battles Illness

This year 27 Miracles wants to bring you,  our faithful readers,  something different for Valentine’s Day.  There are already so many stories about what you can buy, how to be romantic, how to pick jewelery and who is having the best sales.  We decided this year to focus on some touching stories of some of our past clients that did some inspiring things to show their loved one that they were more than loved.

Stay tuned for the next 14 days and watch all our love stories.

Many of you may remember the story of Ivonne and Andrew, america’s love story couple.  Ivonne was diagnosed with cancer and not slated to survive, but her faith in God her family support and the love of her fiance Andrew, changed all that.

Read in Ivonne’s own words her love story …..then watch the video…

“This is how Andrew and I met.  One day, my friend and Andrews’s friend decided to set us up on a blind date. They thought we would be just perfect together.  They described Andrew as tall, handsome and very shy. So I decided to give the date a try. We first met at the Fashion Square Mall, where we had the most awkward date; he bought me a cookie and didn’t talk to me all night. Luckily we gave it another try. And we are so glad that we did because we discovered the amazing connections we have.  Little did I know that the same place he asked me to be his girlfriend, under a gazebo, would be where he proposed one day.

How we got engaged… He took me to my favorite restaurant, Crave, on December 06, 2011; we had a very nice dinner. When we left he put a blind fold on me and told me he was taking me to a very special place. I asked him about a few different places that I thought he might have been taking me. I had a feeling about what was going to happen that night and I started crying under the blind fold of course I did not let him see me. About 20 minutes later he parks somewhere and opened my car door. It was extremely quiet and I couldn’t hear anything. He carried me for about 2 minutes and put me down. He told me that he loved me and he told me how special I was to him. He also he mentioned that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. He took the blindfold off and we were in that special gazebo, I looked down and there he was on one knee, crying with me and asked me the four most special words a man can ask “would you marry me?” I said, “Yes, of course!!”

Special hobbies… A few of the most special hobbies we have together as a couple is playing pool, I have yet to beat him! We also love going jet skiing and wakeboarding.  We also love doing new things, whether going to a movie or going zip lining, we can’t do the same thing all the time.

Vision of wedding… My vision of my wedding has always been extravagant and BLING everywhere. Now that’s what I always thought I would want. Now that we have talked about it, I still love extravagant things at weddings but we also love the idea of a romantic wedding with candles everywhere and beautiful flower centerpieces. Whenever we watch the weddings on TV we love the idea of the candle lights, that’s our favorite. Romantic Simple Bling!! lol!!

A change of course…I was diagnosed on Feb. 13, 2012 with Hodgkin Lymphoma, the news was extremely shocking for us, but did not expect something like this at all. I went to the hospital that day by myself found out the news by myself and in less than an hour later, Andrew, my mom , dad, aunt, grandma and future mother in law were there and I thought to myself how lucky I was to have such a wonderful family who loved me and supported me so much.

I was in and out of the hospital for weeks at a time and there was someone there, always with me, they never left me alone. I had chemotherapy for three months. I felt weak, tired, nauseous and everything in between. I remember some days not being able to get up from my bed., how sore I felt throughout my whole body, not wanting to eat because I couldn’t even smell the food and Andrew having to feed me because my body was in pain.

I think that the worst time of everything combined was the thought of losing my hair. After the first treatment, I cut it very short.  Then when my second treatment came around, it started falling out in a lot of clumps.  So Andrew, my dad and I decided to shave it all off.  Yet, in light of all I went through, shaving my head turned out to be one of my best memories!

I also always told myself, all this is happening for a reason and I realized that being with children at the hospital and watching them go through everything I had to go through, was becoming my true passion and calling.  This solidified my decision to go back to school and study pediatric- oncology nursing. The whole experience from the initial diagnosis of my cancer to the days of getting treatments to fight the cancer and everything in-between has taught me so much! It has taught me to be strong and to never lose faith in God because no matter what is going on through the ups and downs of my life; God has shown me that he is always going to be there for me.”

Daddy’s Little Girl

27 Miracles wants to wish every father out there a Happy Father’s Day!  One of the most special moments at a wedding besides the first dance with your hubby, is the father daughter dance.  Sometimes daddy’s have passed on and not available and we are able to do something different for this moment if the bride wants.  But today we want to give tribute to some very special fathers and daughters out there with daddy’s Little  girl sung by Michael Bolton. we can’t post everyone on here but we have posted a good variety to share with our readers.

Happy One Year Anniversary to Ivonne and Andrew!!!

Last year on this day August 12, 2012,  45 vendors were involved in one of the most special weddings.  This was the wedding of Ivonne and Andrew, The Gift of Love.  For those of you that did not follow the media stories and the wedding of Ivonne and Andrew, here is the link to where all their stories are.

Today 27 Miracles wants to wish this special couple many more years of happiness and health.  You see 1.5 years ago, Ivonne was at the top of the world, modeling for the wedding industry, working at one of the local hotels and going to nursing school.  She was dating Andrew and could not help but think a few years down the road when she finished school about saying ” I Do”.  When an unexpected twist entered their lives.  Everything came to a standstill.  Ivonne was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.  She had 4 tumors, 3 were operable but there was one that was not.  She underwent chemo and radiation.  Her life was not a guarantee.

When Minerva’s Bridals contacted 27 Miracles to plan a wedding as a last wish for a bride, how could they say no?  Master Bridal Consultant Rosie Moore went to work with the help of her fellow vendors and many donations came.  45 Vendors locally in Orlando, out of state, all over the country and internationally from the island of Belize, provided this bride and groom and their families a memorable wedding and even a honeymoon!!


Ivonne went in to remission and soon after the wedding became pregnant.  July 4, 2013 they became parents!!!

So today marks many special blessings for this happy couple!!!

Remember Ivonne and Andrew, What Happened To Them???

Many times you hear a story and you don’t know what happens after the happy ending.  For some of you that don’t know Ivonne and Andrew, here is a link to all their stories https://27miracles.com/category/a-gift-of-love-wedding-ivonne-and-andrew-81212/

But in a nutshell on 8/12/12, 45 plus vendors donated their services to Ivonne and Andrew.  Ivonne was a fashion model in the wedding industry and was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma a few short months after her engagement.  Their world was turned upside down, she could no longer work, go to nursing school, all their finances went to pay for medical care consisting of surgery to remove tumors, chemotherapy and radiation.

The owner of Minerva’s Bridal Shop Minerva, contacted Rosie Moore, MBC for 27 Miracles and asked if she could help plan her wedding in a rush due to the bride’s prognosis.  Rosie Moore went to work and in a short 8 weeks planned a beautiful wedding with the help and donation of 45 vendors, as well as their international honeymoon to Belize donated by Lara of Romantic Travels Belize.

Time passed by and the happy couple started their journey as husband and wife.  Ivonne  went into remission from her cancer and one day 27 Miracles got the first call ( after Family) that they are expecting a little bundle of joy on July 8th!  Wow…God is a God of miracles because a year and a half ago, Ivonne was battling for her life and today she is here with a baby on the way.

Danissa Photography captured some happy moments of the expectant parents to be.  IMG_0506 IMG_0407 IMG_0413 IMG_0419 IMG_0420 IMG_0428 IMG_0437 IMG_0438 IMG_0444 IMG_0456 IMG_0457 IMG_0472
