Teen With Rare Cancer Weds High School Sweetheart

Dustin Snyder and Sierra Siverio become husband and wife.

PLANT CITY, Fla. -- When 19-year-old Dustin Snyder was told he didn't have much time left to live, what was most important in life suddenly became very clear.

Snyder, who's battling a rare form of synovial sarcoma cancer, married his high school sweetheart, Sierra Siverio. The two wed during a ceremony Sunday, Jan. 28.

"Sierra means the world to me. Everything,” Snyder told 10News in an earlier interview. “Can’t even describe it in words."



Snyder and Siverio dated but lost touch after middle school. The couple reunited as high school seniors and last week saw their venue for the first time.

It's been about a year-and-a-half since Snyder first began his battle with cancer.

"If two people love each other and they want to be together for the rest of their lives, why can't they be?" Sierra said earlier.
