Father Battling Heart Failure Shocks Daughter Before Her Wedding: 'It's All Right'


Alexandra Pearson's father, Andre Pearson, thought he wasn't going to be able to make it to his daughter's wedding.

Andre's battle with a heart failure landed him at a treatment center at Mayo Clinic, where "he had resigned himself to watching it online," Mayo Clinic writes.

But thanks to his doctors, Andre received dialysis right before the wedding, which allowed him to travel and surprise his daughter. 

"I can't help but cry, but it's tears of joy," Mr. Pearson told the clinic when he found out he'd be there just in time to walk Alexandra down the aisle.


So on the eve of the wedding, Andre arrived at the house where his family had gathered to celebrate.

Alexandra's reaction to the surprise, pictured right, says it all.

"It's all right. Daddy's here," Andre says as he hugs his emotional daughter in a video that captured the surprise.

A second video presents viewers with an inside look at the beautiful wedding, where Andre and his daughter laughed, cried, and of course, danced.
