Before a ‘Classy Dinosaur’ Wedding Came Leukemia and I.V.F.

Sep 12, 2021

Kaitlin Flannery and John Mancini met in Palo Alto, Calif., and moved across the country together, until a shocking diagnosis meant they had to live apart for a while. Dr. Kaitlin Flannery and John Mancini were married Aug. 14 at the Barn at Mount Hope Farm in Bristol, R.I. They met in 2018, two years before his leukemia diagnosis.Credit...Jillian Freyer for The New York Times By Jenny Block Sept. 10, 2021 Dr. Kaitlin Flannery and John Mancini were 29 and 28 when they met on Bumble in April 2018. They were both living in Palo Alto, Calif. — she was a resident in anesthesiology at Stanford University, and he was a lead data scientist at a cybersecurity start-up in San Jose. At the time, they couldn’t have foreseen the cancer diagnosis that would come less than two years into their relationship. On Bumble, “We talked briefly on the app about the podcasts we had been listening to and then quickly set a date,” Dr. Flannery said. “John claims this is the one and only date where I was on time.” At the end of the date, they looked at their schedules to plan a second date. “This is when I quickly disclosed that I was going to be gone most of the next week interviewing for a job in Boston,” said Dr. Flannery, who is originally from Sioux City, Iowa, and earned a bachelor's degree in integrative physiology at the University of Iowa and a medical degree at the Carver College of Medicine at the University of Iowa, before her Stanford residency. Image A seated dinner was held inside the barn for around 85 guests.Credit...Jillian Freyer for The New York Times She received a fellowship as a pediatric cardiac anesthesia fellow at Boston Children’s Hospital, which is a part of Harvard Medical School. “The catch was that the job didn’t start for a year and a half,” she said. “So, we set the second date and ignored the ticking clock.” Three months into dating, Dr. Mancini turned down an opportunity from his company to work in Ireland for six months, because he did not want to be away from Dr. Flannery. “When I said no to my boss, he said, ‘Let me guess. There’s a girl,’” said Dr. Mancini, who is from Bronxville, N.Y., and earned a bachelor’s degree in chemistry at the University of Richmond and a Ph.D. in computational chemistry from Emory University. “I realized then that she was the one,” he said. “Given the choice between an Ireland adventure and the promise of a lifelong friend and companion, I chose Kaitlin.” Four months into dating and two weeks before her 30th birthday, Dr. Flannery showed Dr. Mancini a list she had compiled years before of 30 things she wanted to accomplish before she turned that age. “John looked at the list and started working on helping me cross off the ones we could in the remaining two weeks,” Dr. Flannery said. This included setting up their own sprint triathlon. “John does not know how to swim laps and he upset a few serious swimmers at the Stanford pool, but he did not stop,” Dr. Flannery said. “This was just the first of my dreams that John helped me achieve.” They relocated to Boston together in September 2019. Then, the unthinkable happened. “Over the fall and into the winter, John started feeling more and more tired,” she said. “To appease me, he carried a Christmas tree across Boston, but then had to sleep for several hours. We were attributing the fatigue to stress from moving and starting a new job.” But stress wasn’t the cause. Image The wedding ceremony was led by one of the bride’s two sisters and the groom’s only sister.Credit...Jillian Freyer for The New York Times In January 2020, the couple found out that Dr. Mancini had leukemia. “I flew to Iowa to attend my grandfather’s funeral,” Dr. Flannery said. “The morning after flying to Iowa, I woke up to over 20 missed calls from John.” Dr. Mancini had stayed in Boston to go to a doctor’s appointment and had been called early in the morning with the shocking diagnosis. “I was frantic to get back to Boston and John,” she said. “I was certain once I got back to him, I would never let him out of my sight.” But by March it became clear that the two had to be separated, as Dr. Flannery noted that she was working in a hospital and “taking care of kids from all over the country and world.” Covid testing and personal protective equipment protocols were also still being developed. For his safety, the couple lived apart for three months. “We were very fortunate to have John’s family home in Rhode Island as his safe haven,” Dr. Flannery said. “He would come back to Boston for his doctor’s appointments, and I would put a new load of groceries in the trunk and wave to him.” On Aug. 17, 2020 Dr. Mancini, who is doing well on cancer treatment, proposed to Dr. Flannery in South Kingstown, R.I., on a beach near his family’s summer home. “The proposal almost didn’t happen due to the requirements for Covid tests when crossing state borders,” Dr. Flannery said, “but after some careful rule following, John was able to get on one knee and ask while recording from his phone. I was so excited I forgot to say yes, prompting John to ask a second time.” With the celebration preparation came the necessity for family planning because of the effects of Dr. Mancini’s treatment. “This spring, while planning the wedding, we went through a cycle of I.V.F. required for us to have kids,” Dr. Flannery said.
