For Kevin “Wash” Pratt and Tashi King, their chance meeting and subsequent marriage was a match made in heaven.  When your first date consists of a viewing of Serenity, you know you might have something good going on.  But not all was to be this perfect for the young couple.

Kevin was diagnosed with brain cancer a few years ago, and not the happy fuzzy variety of brain cancer that goes away and leaves candy behind when it takes off, but the terminal kind.

Despite the fact that the type of cancer Kevin has usually kills within a year, Kevin has managed to carry on for 28 months.  Furthermore, one of his last wishes is to have his cremated ashes placed into a T.A.R.D.I.S. urn when he is gone.

Talk about being a dedicated fan.

So far, friends and family of the couple, as well as people from all over the world, have rallied together to not only get Kevin’s T.A.R.D.I.S. urn, but to raise money for the couple to assist with their medical bills.

Thanks to the folks at for the heads up on this one.
