A mother who was told she had two weeks left to live died only a week after her wedding.

Tasha Burton and Daniel Corley got married at the Hospice of St Francis in Berkhamsted in December.

Tasha, 36, of Ladies Grove, St Albans, was only admitted to the hospice’s inpatient unit at 10am on the Tuesday and at 1pm on Wednesday she and her fiancé Daniel Corley were married. Only a week later, Tasha, the mother of a 19-month-old boy, Alaric, died.

Her husband, Daniel, said in a Facebook post: “I am truly sorry to have to tell you that my beautiful wife sadly lost her fight tonight at 5.30pm.

“She passed away peacefully surrounded by love.

“I am absolutely devastated but know that she will live on through our beautiful son Alaric.

“Tasha was surrounded by family and friends and fought to stay with us for as long as she could.

“She was a truly special person and will be missed by many people, especially her husband, son and family.”

Tasha got engaged to Daniel in 2016.

When Alaric was still little, Tasha learned she had bowel cancer.

After more than a year battling the disease, doctors discovered the cancer had spread.
