JEANNETTE, Pa. (AP) — A 2-year-old Pennsylvania boy with only weeks to live will serve as best man when his parents wed this weekend.

Sean Stevenson and Christine Swidorsky, of Jeannette, had planned to wed next year but decided to move the ceremony up to Saturday so their son, Logan, who has leukemia and other complications, could participate.

Swidorsky's 13-year-old daughter from a previous relationship will be a bridesmaid, and the couple's 1-year-old daughter will be the flower girl. The couple expects about 100 people to attend the wedding.

Logan has Fanconi anemia, a rare disease that often causes cancer. Last week, doctors told the couple the boy would live only two to three weeks more.The story was first reported by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
