Book Description

This is the inspiring story of Naomi Thomas, a secondary breast cancer sufferer who has decided to devote the remainder of her life to spreading joy, helping others to find happiness by fulfilling the wedding dreams of those who are terminally ill.

Naomi was 26 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her boyfriend Graham had proposed just two days earlier. After seven months of treatment Naomi was declared cancer free, only to receive the devastating news a few short months later that the disease had returned and was no longer curable. Her son, Devon, was just six days old. Thoughts of their wedding were the one thing that kept Naomi and Graham going, but the financial burden of terminal illness had made the reality of their special day seem impossible. However, in this time of darkness, the couple discovered the amazing generosity and selflessness of local companies as they rallied around and helped to organise and fund a dream wedding. Their kindness was overwhelming.

Determined not to die in vain, Naomi began fund-raising, ultimately setting up her own charity with the mission of spreading the joy she had experienced on her big day. The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation was formed, and Naomi now organises and funds weddings for those affected by terminal and life-limiting illnesses, helping them to enjoy married life before it’s too late.

Inspiring, heart warming and incredibly moving, this story will show you the true meaning of love.

‘Everyone has the right to marry the love of their life, but you don’t realise just how important it is until you are told you are dying.’

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Inspirational... 19 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Started and finished reading this in one sitting... couldn't put it down. Naomi Thomas' story is inspirational, moving, and incredibly humbling. Her 'matter of fact' way of accepting and writing about her illness is a heartfelt testimony to why we should never take anything for granted, make everyday count and certainly puts life into perspective.

I don't know why a documentary has not yet been made about this brave and courageous young Mum... people need to know about this amazing young mum and the work she is doing to help others in the same situation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational!!!! 14 Jun. 2014
By FranD
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow, does this book get to you or what? Can hardly believe that someone with a terminal illness goes into overdrive to help others!! Can understand why - I have terminal breast cancer myself - but to actually get out there and do it, for others, is just something else. Well done Naomi - you truly are an inspiration to us all. Enjoy the time you have with your obviously loving and doting husband and of course your little miracle boy, Devon. With much love and prayers. Frances XX

5.0 out of 5 stars very uplifting and inspirational 7 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Makes you realise that things are sometimes not as black as they are painted and things happen for a reason. I was diagnosed with the BRCA gene at 42 and had my breasts removed, I was devasted and since then most have my family have also got the gene including 2 of my children. But now I realise that we are the lucky ones and have been given a second chance. Good luck with your charity and hope you have many more years with your lovely family making memories x

Format:Paperback
Naomi Thomas is one of my heroines. Winner of the Daily Mail's 'Inspirational Woman of the Year Award' her book 'No Ordinary Wedding Planner' is the true account of her personal journey after being diagnosed with incurable breast cancer at the age of 26.
Now happily married to her Prince Charming Graham and mum to her son 'and reason for breathing' Devon, she helps others with terminal illnesses to achieve their perfect wedding with her charity 'The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation'.
Naomi's refreshingly honest account and sheer determination and bravery will inspire you beyond belief.
This is a true testimony to girl power as she battles with divorce, cancer, pregnancy and MRSA.
The tone throughout the book is authentic and candid as Naomi talks about her 'bucket list'.
Naomi makes every day count to ensure that her legacy is filled full of happy memories for her son.
Her parting words 'Bring it on, cancer - I'm not done yet!".
By buying this book you can help and I urge you all to share in this remarkable journey and story.

Well, I read this book in one evening, a truly captivating, emotional read.
Naomi is inspirational and although I was diagnosed with a different type of cancer, the book has made
