While weddings are always an emotional experience, it's hard to imagine just how tear-jerking Celia and Geff Kinzel's ceremony must have been.

The two parents recently exchanged vows in the chapel of the Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, OH, where their 2-year-old son Logan is being treated for Stage 4 brain cancer, PEOPLE reports. A photo of the young parents carrying Logan back to his hospital room after the ceremony has now gone viral.

"This picture I snapped is of Celia and Geff taking Logan back to his room," Celia's mom, Megan Dempsey, told Fox 32. "It speaks to me of bravery, love, and the ability to find joy and happiness in almost any situation."

When Logan was diagnosed with Stage 4 Medulloblastoma last year, he underwent brain surgery and months of chemotherapy to remove a tumor. Later that year, on Thanksgiving, the family received the devastating news that Logan's cancer had returned, with multiple tumors on his brain and down his spinal cord. Celia and Geff now spend their time in the hospital with Logan, while his four-year-old brother stays with relatives.

"We were so happy that Logan was able to come down," Megan told ABC News about the chapel wedding. "It was just a nice day for Celia and Geff, and a nice break from what's really been such a difficult time."

Celia and Geff, who got engaged in 2015, were planning a wedding for 2018, but moved up their "I do" plans to make sure that Logan could be a part of this special family memory.

"Everyone was really touched by [the photo]. I really hope from all of this, that it does bring awareness to pediatric cancer," Celia told ABC News. "Before this happened to Logan, I thought it was rare. I hope this sheds some light on it and people see that it's common."
