Young, in love and running out of time: Indianapolis teenagers receive parents’ blessing to marry

INDIANAPOLIS – Chase Smith asked his parents to step out of the hospital room. He wanted to be alone with his doctor. He wanted to talk about life, his future, how much of it was left. It was late April and he had just learned that the tumors were back and had spread throughout his body.

Outside the room, Brad Smith waited anxiously, the idea swirling in his mind. Should he say it to Chase? Should he tell his son what he wanted to tell him?

When the door opened, Brad saw Chase standing there, just 18 but a man wise beyond his years. Brad had his answer.

He walked up to his son and whispered in his ear. “I’ll help you get a ring.”
