FARGO, ND -

It's a bride-to-be's worst nightmare -- imagine having everything set for your big day, only to get a phone call from your fiancé saying the wedding is off! That's exactly what happened to a woman in North Dakota and she's turning the horrible situation into a positive one.

Michelle Marxen was set to tie the knot on October 19th, but everything changed after she received a phone call from her fiancé.

"He didn't wanna marry me. He said he didn't love me anymore."

Michelle had everything ready from the wedding venue to the flowers.

"This would have been the venue at the Ramada," she said.  "It was my fairytale wedding.. when I was younger.. you just dream of your wedding day."

But her fiancé called off the wedding.

"We spent a whole year planning this wedding and it just all ended in a phone call."

Michelle spent thousands of dollars for the wedding and had already signed contracts for a ballroom and other wedding services.  Instead of crying and getting angry, she decided to help herself heal by helping others -- so she donated her wedding plans to Creative Care for Reaching Independence, a non-profit organization that helps people with disabilities.

"I was speechless... Actually the next day I called her to make sure it was for real," said CCRI's Judy Hudson.

The organization says it's throwing a Halloween party for their clients thanks to Michelle's donation.

"It kind of changes you. I feel like I'm trying. This is helping me heal. Giving to some people that you know what is supposed to be my special day, now can turn into their special day," said Michelle.

Michelle says she plans to be in Las Vegas on what would have been her wedding day.
