Sometimes, the best love stories are also the most tragic.

When Chris Price (26) was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given only six more months to live, he selflessly decided to make that remaining time the best of his girlfriend Ceri’s life.

Price married her and then took her and her four children on a whirlwind of adventures — including a family trip to Disneyland Paris.

Chris treated Ceri to an extravagant surprise weekend in New York City, where he splurged on the designer shoes and bags that she had always wanted, but couldn’t afford.

He also purchased a birthday trip for the pair to go to Las Vegas, but unfortunately passed away before the two could go.

Ceri said that Chris, who died in January, understood the importance of making every remaining minute count.

“His illness made him live completely in the moment and he taught me to do the same.”

Chris’ sad but inspirational story can serve as an important reminder for everyone who takes time for granted: it’s never too late to start living the life you want and showing the people you love how important they are to you.
