A leukemia survivor who is losing sight in one eye and uses a wheelchair has overcome another obstacle by walking his daughter down the aisle at her wedding.

Gained strength over summer

Ralph Duquette and his daughter, Heather, had agreed he didn’t have the strength to walk her down the aisle at her wedding in Maine.

But on Oct. 10, Ralph Duquette was helped out of his wheelchair in Old Orchard Beach and did just that — in front of 75 friends and relatives.

Duquette worked with physical therapists over the summer to gain the strength to walk Heather down the aisle.

The two also danced together for their father-daughter dance.
