A 27-year-old woman with a life-threatening lung condition found herself in a heated argument with her 30-year-old brother over his wedding plans. The sister, who uses a wheelchair, requested that her brother choose a wedding venue that is wheelchair accessible and close to accommodations, so she could attend the wedding and rest if needed. However, her brother and his fiancée chose a venue that met neither of these requirements, sparking an emotional confrontation between the siblings. 😢💔
