Native of Los Banos, Laguna Vilma Cabading flew to the United States to become a caregiver. She took care of Robert Ferriera’s ailing aunt. However, they fell in love.

They carefully planned a summer wedding set in July this year, but Robert, 65, received the devastating news that he was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Robert was hospitalized and overthrew their plans.

“The last few weeks have been surreal,” said Robert Ferreira. “The one constant in my life is my love for Vilma. We wanted to be married and my cancer diagnosis was not going to rob me of that joy.”
