Whether a blind date, a chance meeting or even a lucky Tinder swipe, every couple has an origin story.
Heather Krueger and Chris Dempsey are no different, but theirs began in a darker place than most: with stage 4 liver cancer.
Krueger was diagnosed in March 2014.
The prognosis was not good. That same month, she turned 25. She should have been in the prime of her life. Instead, Krueger was confronting her mortality.
Love certainly wasn't on her mind.
