US couple fall in love after battling the same type of...

The “how it started / how it goes” trend has flooded the internet with delightfully nostalgic memories, but for a couple, it reveals a truly touching love story.

Molly Gorczyca and Ryan Smith were treated for the same Kind of cancer when they met and quickly fell in love.

The couple, both 21, shared their romance on Twitter and have been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer – acute myeloid leukemia (AML) – that affects the bone marrow and blood.

Gorczyca was diagnosed in April 2019 and four months later Smith suffered the same fate.

The couple, both university athletes, were rare cases as the cancer typically affects adults by the age of 68, according to the Cancer Council.

The rarity of their mutual diagnosis led Gorczyca of New Jersey to connect with Smith from Pennsylvania on social media last October while Gorczyca was being treated at the Philadelphia Children’s Hospital.

“A girl from my high school who goes to Ryan’s college retweeted an article about a ‘basketball warrior fighting cancer’,” said Gorczyca PEOPLE.

“I started reading it and learned that Ryan was my age, also a college athlete, and battling the exact same cancer. When I saw that I was thinking, ‘I have to stretch out.’ “

In her sweet tweet about the couple’s relationship, Gorczyca included a screenshot of a text she’d sent to a friend jokingly saying, “There’s a boy my age with the same cancer in the hospital right next to me… Imma’s dating with him. “”

When they finally met, the couple sparked a supportive friendship – which soon turned romantic in March of that year.

“I never thought that I would actually go out with him!” Gorczyca said of her “cute” basketball friend.

Smith revealed that his mother was an important catalyst in the couple’s partnership, leading her son to speak to Gorczyca and regularly reminding him that she was “really pretty.”

The couple made their relationship official shortly before Smith had a bone marrow transplant because it was “difficult” to deal with isolation from each other.

“When it was my transplant appointment, she went to Philadelphia and waved a sign outside my room and said, ‘Happy Transplant Day,'” said Smith.

Despite a harrowing health journey, the two shy away from being referred to as the “Cancer couple” and instead focus on their love of exercise, drive, and ambition.

Since sharing their love story on Twitter, the two have received over 1.7 million likes and tens of thousands of supportive comments from around the world.

“I didn’t expect it to reach a romantic level, but we hit it off,” said Gorczyca Tyla.

“We’re both in remission and refusing to let cancer define us. We have so much more in common than the cruel illness. “

The couple have been together for seven months and are now in remission.

Together they look forward to a happy and healthy future.
