Chasity and Jay first met while serving in Egypt in 2009. Chasity has served in the US Army for 14 years and Jay has served in the US Navy for 3 years.
After returning home, the couple began to plan their wedding and then Jay was hit with the news that would "rock their souls and test their faith in God!" Jay's leukemia diagnosis put their lives on hold and he was immediately hospitalized. More bad news was added to the couple's plate as they learned that, due to his treatments, they would never be able to have children. Shortly after, "the roller coaster began: Chemo, dialysis, transplants (June 2014), losing his hair, weight loss, liquid meals through a bag. . .the works!". It seemed that everything that could have happened, did!
Jay is still in the hospital and has good days and bad days. Through it all, Chasity has been by his side. She has held fundraisers to help pay for treatments, has been working 3 jobs to keep finances together and spends every night at the hospital.
Their love is evident in all they do, and the friend who nominated them continues to say "they are true companions and deserve to be happy. . .very happy. . .words don't do them justice."
The couple hopes to wed in the winter of 2015.
