About a year ago CNN brought us the story of Dalton and Katie Prager, two young adults with cystic fibrosis who met on the Internet and went on to get married.
Their story, drawing plenty of similarities from the book and movie The Fault in Our Stars, has captivated a nationwide audience thanks to several different media outlets and the creation of a Facebook page with thousands of followers.
Unfortunately, that story came to an end today.
Katie Prager passed away from complications due to CF early this morning, while Dalton passed away only a few days ago after just as long of a fight with CF. From CNN:
Katie Prager, the wife in the real “Fault in Our Stars” couple, died Thursday after complications from cystic fibrosis and a lung transplant. She was 26 years old…Her husband, Dalton Prager, died just days earlier, on Saturday, after suffering from the same disease. He was 25.
