4-Year-Old Leukemia Patient ‘Marries’ Favorite Nurse in Hospital [VIDEO]
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. Thanks to Scott Wright and the team at the Enchanted Garden for donating your time and amazing flowers and to everyone at AMC that helped pull this together in less than 24 hours. You people are amazing. THIS is why we go into nursing.

And it was all put together by pediatric cancer nurses and local businesses.
Get the tissues out, because this video has all the feels.
Lori Ciafardoni, a nurse at Albany Medical Center Hospital in New York, posted this video to a local news station's Facebook page, and it's spread like wildfire. She and the staff at Melodies Center for Childhood Cancers at AMC put together a "dream wedding" for a 4-year-old cancer patient and her favorite nurse, Matt.
We've done a lot of work for years with the Children's Miracle Network, and we can confirm that anybody who works with children in hospitals is an absolute saint. What a beautiful video!
