THE bride who lost both legs in an horrific accident on the way to her wedding has been pronounced free of cancer.
Brave Dawn Auty, 43, formerly from Huddersfield, had her legs amputated after they got entangled in a motor-trike taking her to church in Blackpool.
She is already back home less than three weeks after the accident.
Now she has been handed good news after finding that a lump in her right breast is not cancerous.
Dawn said she will go ahead with her marriage to fiance Steve Flood, 33, next summer after new legs are fitted.
This time she is planning to go to the ceremony on the back of one of Blackpool's beach donkeys.
Dawn said: "I also want to wear the same dress. I'll have to take it up quite a bit, won't I?"
Doctors are amazed at her fast recovery.
Dawn, a nurse at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary for 20 years, revealed that positive mental attitude had pulled her through.
She said: "It's the only way to go forward.
"Now the test results have cleared me of cancer, we can see we have a life in front of us, and it is a wonderful life.
"We have to take every day as it comes and face all the new challenges before us."
Dawn and Steve had pushed their wedding forward because she feared she had terminal cancer.
But while she was recovering from her injuries she was told her breast lumps were benign.
Fighting Dawn said: "I'm going to get a new pair of legs. I might even paint them different colours, but I must get a lot stronger first and get my muscles back working."
Dawn and Steve are at the terrace home they share with her four cats and three dogs until they get a new specially-adapted bungalow.
The bride-to-be was on the trike with her 21-year-old son Peter.
Her daughter Laura, 19, was one of the bridesmaids in a car ahead.
Dawn said: "We were on a bit of road where sand had blown off the beach and it was muddy with rain.
"I started to feel as if I was slipping off the seat and went further."
Her legs were amputated on the spot.
Dawn said she hated shopping for shoes and was pleased she'll never have "knobbly knees".
Displaying her courageous spirit, she said: "When I get my new legs I'm determined to dance again, just as I am determined to walk up the aisle to marry Steve."
