COMMERCE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- A Detroit-area hospital has hosted a wedding for a man fighting cancer.

Eric Thomas and his bride, Lindsey, got hitched Saturday at Detroit Medical Center Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital in Oakland County's Commerce Township.

The newlyweds are from Lake Orion.

The Oakland Press reports ( ) they had planned to get married sometime in 2015. But when Thomas was diagnosed with cancer, plans had to be made sooner.

With the ceremony scheduled for Saturday, the couple were disappointed when Thomas' condition worsened and he was advised by doctors to stay in the hospital.

Hospital staff then offered him a backup plan -- to host a small wedding and reception at the hospital.

The couple were married in the hospital's lobby in front of about 50 family members, friends and staff. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
