Lance and Anna’s wedding ceremony also comes a little more than nine months after Anna revealed that the pair—who began dating in 2008—were recognizing a very important milestone in the athlete’s life: Last October marked 25 years since Lance was diagnosed with testicular cancer.

In an Instagram caption, she wrote “It’s my honor to be a part in this journey with your babe.” Today we are celebrating you. We honor those who lost their battles and salute everyone who is still fighting, one foot at a time, every day. Today, my heart goes out to all of you. “I couldn’t be more proud to stand beside you.”
