Jillian Hanson Allegretti had nearly given up on life when she says her now-husband, Max Allegretti, breathed life back into her.

It's a line the Andover native included in her wedding vows -- nearly two years after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Through it all, Max, of Montlcair, was by her side.

Back then, they weren't engaged yet. All then 25-year-old Jillian had was a promise from Max he'd be there through it all.

The couple tied the knot last month -- cancer-free.
