It’s only been a month since Sarah and Lee Reed exchanged vows, but now the newlywed with terminal cancer is re-teaching her husband the dos and don’ts of dating in the hope that he will land a partner after her death. Sarah, 37, has only a few months to live, and is desperate for the 26-year-old Lee to find a girlfriend for him and her 10-year-old autistic daughter, Chloe, The Scottish Sun reported.

Sarah, who lives in the united kingdom, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, two years after the pair had gotten together, according to the news outlet. Despite years of chemotherapy and radiation, doctors discovered the cancer had spread to her lungs and ovaries, and told her it was fatal, according to The Scottish Sun.


Sarah set up a GoFundMe page in the hope to make enough money for the treatment at the Hallwang Clinic in Germany. She blogs regularly about her treatments in a Facebook group with the title “My battle.”

“The hardest thing about this is as a parent and have to explain to my 10 year old autistic daughter that mummy is going to die,” Sarah wrote on the GoFundMe page.

The couple applied for a Donation Of A Wedding, an organization that helps the partners faced with terminal illnesses, and in the run-up to the big day, Sarah focused on teaching Lee the ropes of dating.

“It had taken him ages to get together with me and on the first date he should not brought his wallet, so I knew that he needed some help,” Sarah told The Scottish Sun. “I explained that I had to know that he is happy again and that would make sure that Chloe was happy too.”


Sarah instructed Lee to sign up for online dating and is focused on the coaching of him by the first-date process.

“It might sound crazy teaching my man how to meet a new woman, when we were but just married, but I need to know, he will be happy after me,” she told The Scottish Sun. “Life should wear for them, so I’m helping the only way I knew how. He will make an incredible husband for a lucky woman.”

Sarah told the news outlet that Lee was “shocked” at first, but has since accepted his wife’s help.

“When Sarah told me that I had to meet someone else, I was angry, but I understood it was her way of looking after me,” Lee told The Scottish Sun. “In my opinion, she is irreplaceable and iw ant to her husband for as long as possible.”
