- Chelsea Handfield and Dr Dancy met during Chelsea's first year of medical school
- The 'drunk in love' pair ended up in different schools not far from each other
- Chelsea and Dr Dancy will be training together as a dermatologist and orthopaedic surgeons respectively at the same hospital
In spite of the challenges of keeping up with school demands and relationship, Chelsea Handfield and Dr Dancy are an example of how love could serve as adrenaline to defeat all odds.
The couple with social media handles @chelseabellesmd and @dr.dancy met when Chelsea was in her first year of medical school. He wasn’t in school yet.
However, a friend convinced him to come along to the function and that was where their love story pleasantly ignited.
A few months later, Dancy was accepted at the medical school down the street from her own.
The first year was full of fun dates, but he couldn’t understand her limited free time until school started for him the following year.
His and hers were the only faces they saw while studying for board exams. She was his companion and food study buddy during his busy hospital rotations.
He kept her company on late nights and weekends while she toiled in the research lab.
She took an extra research year (and he did not) so that they could apply for residency at the same time.
And despite the immense odds, through God’s mercy and grace, they achieved their wildest dream - training together as dermatologist and orthopaedic surgeons at one of the best hospitals in the world.
Chelsea took to social media to share their awe-inspiring story.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a Nigerian man identified as Anthony Esho had married his Jamaican fiancee, Simone Isaacs, at the Washington D.C. War Memorial park in the United States.
The wedding was witnessed by just five guests, two from both families and the fifth person was the officiating minister. Another person present was the photographer.
Sharing photos from the wedding on his Instagram page, Anthony wrote: “Unfortunately we couldn’t have a “traditional” wedding but I thank God for the journey and wouldn’t have had it any other way.
"A lot of people have told me they are proud of me. Quite frankly I’m very proud of myself. As a boy, my mother preached a lot but a few always stood out."
