A husband has paid a heart-wrenching tribute to his wife who died just weeks after their wedding.

Georgia McCarthy died from breast cancer last month after bravely battling the killer disease during lockdown, the Liverpool Echo reports.

The 25-year-old, from Liverpool, wed long-term partner Isaac on October 21 on what was her birthday just three weeks before she tragically died.

Isaac, 24, described her as the "most selfless and charitable person" he has ever met.

He said she was always trying to raise awareness of breast cancer and encourage other women to check their breasts.

Isaac said: "She was just always so selfless. She was the most thoughtful person I've ever met.

"She taught me to be more thoughtful. She was so encouraging to me.

"I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing – working my dream job now, because I wouldn't have had the confidence or encouragement without her."

Georgia was diagnosed with breast cancer in April after the first coronavirus lockdown had begun.

Isaac is asking people to donate to the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre and the Linda McCartney Centre, where she received treatment, via a GoFundMe page.

"Such a beautiful young girl. Thinking of her husband and all the family. Sleep peacefully, sweetheart."

Isaac and Georgia got together aged 16 and have always donated to different charities.

"I want to carry her legacy on – that's my driving force."

After Georgia was diagnosed with the disease, Isaac said she had 15 embryos frozen so they could start a family together in the future.

The couple received the devastating news on November 3 that the cancer had spread to Georgia's brain and she died in her sleep on November 11.

Isaac said of their wedding: "It was the best day of my life.

"If we moved it back a week it wouldn't have happened so I'm very lucky that we managed to do that.

"I'm just trying to focus on the eight years I've spent with her."
