Man with cystic fibrosis dies before seeing his dying wife

Man with cystic fibrosis dies before seeing his dying wife

This can't be the end of our love story.

Dalton Prager, the young husband whose real-life romance echoed The Fault in Our Stars, has died, CNN reports. They were desperate to meet, but were also completely aware of how unsafe that meeting would be for Katie.

Katie, who also has CF, was in a hospice in Kentucky, and so was unable to be by her husband's side in St Louis, Missouri, in his last moments due to the highly contagious nature of his illness. They knew that if they meet in person, Katie might contract the same infection. "I'll see him soon", she said. 'That was definitely something I had to think about, but when you have those feelings, you just know'.

"[Being married] gave me some of the best years of my life", Katie Prager told CNN.

Dalton got his new lungs first, in November 2014, and the couple was kept separate until Katie got hers eight months later, after a grueling insurance battle. He was again hospitalised recently with pneumonia and a viral infection.

Tragedy struck last week when Katie was put into hospice care last week when her doctors found that her transplant was not workings and that there was nothing else they could do.

Katie and her family are raising money for her "Celebration of Life" to help her enjoy as many experiences as she can before she dies.

On Saturday Dalton Prager lost his life at age 25 after a hard battle with cystic fibrosis, a disease which was complicated by a failed lung transplant in 2014.

Donald Trump says only mothers deserve paid family leave
While popular imagination may still talk about the "two-parent household", the reality is that families look a lot different now. After the policy was released today, Michael Linden, an analyst at The Hub Project and former adviser to the U.S.


A Kentucky woman losing her battle with cystic fibrosis was planning to celebrate Christmas in September when she learned her husband has died. It was on July 16, their fifth wedding anniversary, when the couple saw each other for the last time.

However, the transfer was set back numerous times for several reasons, and on September 17, the same day Mrs. Prager's family chose to throw her an early Christmas celebration, Mr. Prager passed away at the young age of twenty-five. "She told him that she loved him", her mother tells CNN. "We don't know if he heard her".

As Dalton Prager lay dying, he prayed for one more miracle.

They got married two years after that first meeting, when they were 20 years old, and The doctors' worst fears came true.

Dalton checked into Barnes-Jewish Hospital about two weeks ago and had been in intensive care and on a ventilator.

After knowing their story, CNN, The Washington Post, and other local, national, and global media started calling the pair the "Real "Fault in Our Stars" couple", after John Green's best-selling novel turned into a movie.

Prager leaves behind his 26-year-old wife Katie, who also has cystic fibrosis.
