Like most brides, Nicole Moore Zimmerman wanted the perfect wedding day: the man of her dreams waiting at the alter, the perfect dress, flawless hair, etc. But unlike other brides, cancer changed her plans. She was diagnosed with renal carcinoma, kidney cancer.

Renal cell carcinoma, also known as hypernephroma, is a kidney cancer that originates in the lining of the proximal convoluted tubule, a part of the very small tubes in the kidney that transport waste molecules from the blood to the urine.

Nicole lost her hair during chemotherapy and was met with disappointment when a contest for a custom wig fell through, FOX 26 reports. Mr. A, from Defining Your Own Beauty Foundation, became Nicole’s “hair angel” when he heard about her story and made sure Nicole had a beautiful custom wig through chemo and most importantly for her wedding day.

Just call him Nicole’s hair angel. His foundation Defining your own Beauty” raises money for hair pieces. Mr. A says, “I’m just so grateful to be able to give this young lady something she’s well deserving of.”

A simple gesture to help a beautiful mom and bride-to-be feel like a princess when she says “I-do” and begin her happily ever after turned into what seemed like a million gestures when people on social media heard of her news.

The story took off on facebook with over 9 million people reached. The video was viewed over 3 million times.

Nicole and her fiancé planned to wed in late October doctors told the couple Nicole might not live long enough to see her wedding day. Within 24 hours, the volunteers, along with the hospital where Moore was being treated, came together to make the wedding happen. From the DJ to the photographer, and even the venue at the hospital was donated. It was beautiful.
