Sarasota, Florida -- For most couples, "'Til death do us part" may seem a lifetime away. But for those whose partners are battling a terminal illness, that affirmation is all too close to home.

A Parrish couple renewed their vows today, reaffirming their commitment to each other as the wife battles cancer. Eden Banks was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer back in 2009, but the cancer has spread to her brain.

Today, with the help of Wish Upon a Wedding, Eden and her husband, Corey, got a dream come true, celebrating their almost five years together at a ceremony at the Ritz Carlton.

Eden says there have been times they've been tested, but she encourages other couples to push through.

Eden and Corey also had a reception at Roy's restaurant. The donated wedding cost about $8,000.
