Real-life ‘Fault in Our Stars’ Couple Dies Only Days Apart


You know the movie, ‘Fault In Our Stars’? Well the stars dubbed the real-life Hazel and Gus have unfortunately passed away. The couple had been in love for years, and both struggled with cystic fibrosis.

Despite of being married, doctors had forced them to live apart, concerned that Dalton would pass on an infection to Katie. Sadly, that’ didn’t do them any good, as Katie, 26, died five days after her husband, who was 25.1

The couple had been living in separate homes for years. Katie lived in Kentucky, and Dalton in Missouri. Last time they were together was in January, for their fifth anniversary.

Katie’s mother, Debra Donavan, wrote on Facebook ‘Early this morning,she gained her wish of being at home, in her bed, surrounded by her mom, dad, brother and her dogs, dying peacefully, away from the hospital, tubes, IVs.’


She continued: ‘I know Dalton was waiting with open arms, as well as both her grandmothers and a host of family and friends that have gone before her.’

Dalton’s mother, also had something to say to the press about the death of her son. ‘He has tried so many times and has tried so hard. Unfortunately his body is not agreeing with what he wants to do,’ she said.


After this tragedy, Katie’s mom has been asking people to live life to the fullest, as you never know what’s gonna happen. ‘The days to follow will not be easy but I find comfort in knowing that my girl lived, she really lived. If there is something you want to do, don’t wait. Life is short, love as hard as you can.’
