When Fred Evans was given only months to live after a terminal cancer diagnosis, he wanted to do something for his daughters that he wouldn’t get to do later – walk them down the aisle. He surprised the women at Watermark Community Church in Dallas this summer and presented them with a touching and heartwarming gesture to take with them in the future.

Evans had always wanted to walk is daughters Gracie and Kate down the aisle on their wedding day, so he did the next best thing.

The surprise was captured by Fotolanthropy, a charitable organization who photographed the event free of charge. A collection of photos from that day have been put together in this beautiful and heartbreaking video. Grab your tissues. You’ll need them.
