Kind-hearted nurses helped a terminally ill mother-of-three marry her long-term partner in hospital. 

Lacey Page (née O'Driscoll), 34, from Northfield, Birmingham, was diagnosed with stomach cancer at the beginning of the year.She received the heartbreaking news that there was nothing doctors could do for her and that her diagnosis was terminal. 

Lacey's partner, Kyle Page, popped the question on Valentine's Day at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. 

Following the proposal, nurses at the hospital sprang into action to help plan the couple's special day in just three days. 

They even used a holepunch to make confetti when they realised there was none for the celebrations.

Lacey, mum to Daisy, 10, Olivia, nine and Kyla, three, thanked the nursing team for making the wedding happen.

Lacey said: "The nurses have done an amazing job and I'm so grateful for the beautiful day they were able to put together in such as short amount of time. Thank you."Upper GI clinical nurse specialists, supported by the Ward 625 team, sourced sharp tailoring, delicious cakes, and arranged all the formalities for the family to celebrate the precious moment together. 

They found a dress for the bride from The Dressing Rooms Bridal in Halesowen, West Midlands.Macmillan Clinical Nurse Specialist, Rachel Ede, said: "When Kyle proposed, we wanted Lacey and Kyle both to have the most special day, surrounded by their lovely children and family."We were able to leap into action as a team of upper GI clinical nurse specialists along with the Ward 625 team to source a stunning dress, in which Lacey looked just beautiful, suit fittings for the groom who looked dashing, and we arranged the registrar to marry them - also arranging a blessing from the hospital chaplain. 

"Lacey's family and friends arranged the gorgeous flowers and balloons to make it that much more special."

Fay Prince, Upper GI clinical nurse specialist, added: "There have been lots of smiles, laughter and tears as we worked to make sure Lacey's wedding goes off without a hitch.

"It is amazing to see that so many came together to give Lacey, Kyle and family these special moments to treasure forever."At the last minute we remembered we had forgotten the confetti, and in a flurry we found some coloured paper and a hole punch, making our own confetti to give Lacey and Kyle a little bit of extra wedding magic.

"We're so happy to have been able to make this happen for Lacey and Kyle."Jonathan Brotherton, chief executive of University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, said: "Well done to these amazing colleagues who always pull out all the stops for our patients, it makes me so proud that our teams are able to do such amazing things like this, which, even if given six month’s planning time, is a lot to arrange.

"To Lacey and Kyle, from our UHB family to yours, congratulations on your marriage, we hope to have helped you make some very special and treasured memories and we all wish you and your family all the very best."A spokesperson for University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust added: "The Trust and family thank June Peony Bridal Couture of Islington Row Middleway, Birmingham, The Dressing Rooms Bridal of Manor Lane, Halesowen, and M&S Simply Food, High Street, Harborne.
