London, Nov 30 (ANI): For most brides their wedding dress is the most cherished part of their life, but for a Brit woman it holds much more significance because it saved her life.

When Christina Quilter tried on her 1,000 pounds white satin dress, its tightly ribbed corset sent a searing pain shooting through her right breast.

The 27-year-old visited the doctors to get it checked and found that she had a particularly aggressive form of breast cancer.

However, after an urgent mastectomy and chemotherapy, she was finally able to tied the knot with her partner Dan.

There is no doubt my wedding dress saved my life. If I hadnt been wearing it, Id never have had the early diagnosis. I was told that was crucial, News of the World quoted her, as saying. (ANI)
