|First dance as husband and wife|
If anything, these two became a stronger team, each supporting the other as more "spots" showed up on PET scans, through a welcomed pregnancy, during a long labor (in the midst of which Brandon had a chemo treatment), as they adjusted to life as first-time parents, and when Brandon's treatment options ran out.
Brandon and Christina committed themselves to one another for a lifetime on July 23, 2010. Their lifetime as husband and wife may have lasted only 22 months and a week, yet they truly lived and loved to the fullest for those almost two years - probably more than many couples live and love when given 50+ years to spend together.
They celebrated their first anniversary - and the only one they spent together - at Boi Na Braza Brazilian Steakhouse. They toasted each other with caipirinhas and celebrated impending parenthood and their life together only days after a particularly disappointing PET scan. Last year on their second anniversary and this year on their third, Christina has marked the date by inviting a few family members and friends to join her at Boi Na Braza to again celebrate the life she and Brandon had together and the love they found in one another.
