The story of Jade and Jordan Rider is more than your typical love story; it is one full of family, of losses and gains, and unwavering devotion.
The sweet couple had always known of one another, but when they finally met in person, they shared an instant connection that naturally grew into a deep love and friendship. “I got to marry my best friend!” Jade says. The proposal was on Easter Sunday, April 1st, 2018, but was no April fool’s joke. It was, in fact, very real and shared in front of their families and friends. Jordan was able to pull off the whole engagement without Jade knowing a thing. And, yes, someone did scream “Aprils Fools!”, her mom, Diane.
A wedding date was set. As the planning began, her mother complained she had not been feeling well. She eventually went to the emergency room for a scan, for what they thought may be pneumonia. It was then that they received news that would change their lives forever. “I will never forget that call from my dad. I was at work and my heart literally broke.” Diane was diagnosed with stage 4 adenoma carcinoma.
