Brennan Elliott is looking back at 12 years of marriage with wife Camilla Row, and how their love "has stood firm and fought on" through it all.

The Gift of Peace actor, 47, shared two heartfelt Instagram posts over the weekend in honor of the couple's 12th anniversary as husband and wife, as he praised her for being "fearless" throughout their journey together.

"To say we have been thru many lifetimes together would be an understatement," Elliott wrote of his wife of 12 years, alongside an image of the pair smiling on their wedding day. "9/10/11 will always be THAT SPECIAL day! Before u i never knew what true love was. It’s more than a feeling, it’s a commitment to fight thru everything life throws at you and u never give up on love!"

"Being by your side going on life’s journey together has been the greatest gift and I would never want to be joined at the hip with anyone else," he added. "There have been bright moments and yes very very painful and dark ones but our love has stood firm and fought on, and will never quit or give in! I have never seen a more stronger and fearless example of determination and Hope than in you these last 8 years or so."

Elliott then called the mother of two his "warrior queen" and his "idol" before writing about the future of their marriage, which he referred to as the "ride of a lifetime."

"I know in my heart the lord will bless us with decades more of HEALTH and HAPPINESS and nobody deserves that more than you," he concluded. "THANK YOU for saying yes to this prairie boy and always know I will never leave your side."

In a later post, Elliott shared a selfie of himself giving Row a hug. "THANK YOU for the best years of my life! Here’s to many many many more! #warriorqueen," he captioned the image.

The touching tribute comes six months after Elliott shared that Row had received some positive news as she lives with stage IV gastric cancer, when biopsies at the time came back negative.

Then, in August, Row underwent surgery to remove pelvic lesions, which had unfortunately become cancerous, according to Heavy. "But the GREAT news is that my surgeon was able to easily remove that area and then apply the heated chemo solution directly to the area in question,” Row wrote on social media at the time, according to Heavy. "So with that theoretically being my only visible cancer – I am back to having no measurable disease."

The Hallmark star previously announced that his wife had been diagnosed with cancer several years ago, and later thanked fans for their support following the scary news. He told PEOPLE last summer that they had "over a million people praying for her in like two days."

"It was just bananas. It's a testament to the fans, the people that watch this channel and the people that are in the cancer community," he said.

"I think everybody's been affected by [cancer]," Elliott added. "It's a dreadful disease and it's something that's obviously dear to my heart, cause obviously my wife's gone through it."
