CHICAGO — Kristin Roberts and her longtime boyfriend, Chris, wanted to get married.

But she was due for a heart transplant.

Rather than wait, the couple tied the knot at University of Chicago Medical Center, just two day before her transplant surgery.

It’s been nearly a month since their wedding day.  Kristin is recovering and doing well.

With the transplant behind her, the happy couple is now making plans for the rest of their life together.
