4 year old cancer patient has the best day ever!
A hospital is a somewhat unconventional wedding venue, but for 4 year old Abby and her nurse Matt, it was the most appropriate of places.
At the Melodies Center, Albany Medical Center in New York, staff made a little girl’s day by staging a wedding. Abby is a 4 year old Pre – B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia patient who loved her nurse Matt Hickling so much she told her Mom how she wanted to marry him one day. After Matt was told about Abby’s wishes, he decided to plan a special day for them to ‘tie the knot’.
The majority of the medical center staff witnessed the cute couple get married, her proud Mom giving her away down a rose petal aisle, with Abby carrying a pink and purple rose bouquet donated from a local florist. Matt pushed Abby back down the aisle in a toy car reading “Just Married” before celebrating with some wedding cake.
What a wonderful way to make a little girl feel special!
