AKRON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio couple who married on Christmas Day decided to share their vows in the hospital room where their 4-year-old son, Billy, is being treated for cancer.

Sarah Lewis and William Cramer say over the years they made other wedding plans that fell through.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports ( the timing then worked out for Thursday's wedding at Akron Children's Hospital with relatives in town and Cramer's uncle available as a minister. Lewis and Cramer live in Mogadore, in suburban Akron.

Hospital workers prepared quickly for the wedding. Relatives including the couple's other children, 2-year-old Mason and 1-year-old Delaney, jingled bells from the back of the room.

Doctors say Billy appears to be beating his neuroblastoma cancer.
