    http://news.aol.com/health/article/jayla-cooper-wedding/356245� Feb. 24) - Jayla Cooper's dying wish came true as she married her friend in a dreamwedding in Texas.
    Jayla, who's just 9 years old, likely has only weeks to live after having battled leukemia for the last two years, reports WFAA-TV.

    "We didn't expect to do this when she was 9 years old, but she has taught us all how to love each other and to be strong," said Lisa Cooper, Jayla's mother.

    In the symbolic ceremony, put together in less than a week, Jayla wore a white dress and walked down the aisle on her father's arm.

    She "married" Jose Griggs, a young boy who's also facing illness. The two youngsters, who met in the hospital, vowed to be friends forever.

    "He's very cute, and I love him," Jayla said of her 7-year-old groom.
