YAKIMA -- A Yakima cancer patient who fell in love with another cancer patient and married has died.
The father of Rodney Conradi told Yakima Herald-Republic that he died Saturday at Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital. He was 21.
Kirk Conradi says his son had not been conscious for several days. He had been fighting bone cancer for a year-and-a-half.
During his treatment, Rodney met leukemia patient Lynsie Rainford of Bellingham while the two were undergoing cancer treatment in Seattle.
They fell in love. He proposed on Valentine's Day, and they were married two days later at the hospital in Yakima.
