A Cancer Patient Couldn't Afford to Get Married, So Mark Cuban Paid for the Wedding


Since 2009, a woman outside Fort Worth, Texas named Monica Wilkinson has been planning to marry her fiancé Leroy.  But she started having health problems, and they couldn't afford a wedding.
 
Then in January, things got even worse . . . she was diagnosed with stage four ovarian cancer.  (We're not sure how old Monica is, but we're guessing early 40s.)
 
So Monica started chemo, and probably thought the wedding would NEVER happen.  Luckily, she was wrong. 
 
Because somehow MARK CUBAN heard about it . . . he's the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, and one of the businessmen on the show "Shark Tank".  And he decided to pay for the ENTIRE WEDDING.
 
We're not sure HOW he found out, but Monica and Leroy had hit up different charities, and they live near Dallas.  And one day they got a call from Cuban's assistant, saying Mark was taking care of it.  
 
The wedding went down last month, and now Monica is in the middle of 18 rounds of chemo.  And even though they haven't met Mark, they say they're hopeful, and couldn't be more grateful.  (WFAA)
