Husband surprises wheelchair-bound wife

Carl Gilbertson’s wife Laura was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) as a teenager. MS causes the body to deteriorate by wrongly attacking healthy parts of the body. This can cause many problems, particularly with vision, movement, sensation and balance.

Because of this debilitating autoimmune condition, Laura has been forced to live life through a wheelchair since her honeymoon with Carl ended.

Now, after 10 happy years of marriage, Carl decided to mark the occasion with a once-in-a-lifetime present. Carl, alongside the Liverpool Media Academy, held a surprise street performance of Laura’s favourite song ‘Just the Way You Are’ by Bruno Mars.

Both Laura, and the many strangers watching, were reduced to tears after such a moving gesture. The performance made it online, and has since been viewed over 300,000 times on the Love What Matters Facebook page.

Carl topped off his romantic gift by adding a personal message on his Facebook, dedicated to Laura.

“At our wedding breakfast I said that ‘it is the greatest honour anybody could ever bestow upon me for you to take me as your husband and the most enduring privilege to be able to call you my wife’. It was never just a line for a speech it was how I felt and you spend every day reinforcing it.

Your strength, courage and dignity take my breath away and though most Saturdays at kickoff time you may not think it, you’re the only thing that really matters.

My babe, you’re amazing – just the way you are.”
