ALBANY, NY — A hospital in New York helped make a young cancer patient’s dream come true.
4-year-old Abby is a patient at Albany Medical Center Hospital, and is battling leukemia.
She hoped to one day marry her favorite nurse at the hospital, Matt Hickling.
So the staff at Melodies Center for Childhood Cancers at AMC threw Abby a ‘wedding’ to remember, complete with her groom Matt Hickling.
Lori Ciafardoni shared a video to her Facebook page on Thursday.
With the video, she says, “So today I got to help make a 4 year old leukemia patient’s “wedding” to her favorite nurse Matt Hickling happen at the Melodies Center for Childhood Cancers at AMC.”
Ciafardoni finished by saying, “THIS is why we go into nursing.”
The ‘wedding’ was complete with a white dress for the little bride, nurses serving as bridesmaids, and rose-covered aisle.
Abby’s groom wore a tuxedo T-shirt.
