Meet the 4-Year-Old That Married Her Nurse and Has Everyone on the Internet Cheering

This was a very special gift.

Melodies Center for Childhood Cancers isn’t the first place you’d expect a wedding to be held, but this week a hospital room was transformed into the perfect setting for a very special ceremony. One four-year-old leukemia patient was “married” to her favorite male nurse in front of a very proud group of witnesses. The woman who filmed the “wedding,” Lori Ciafardoni was as touched as anyone by the compassion exhibited by everyone involved. “You people are amazing,” she wrote in her Facebook post, “THIS is why we go into nursing.”

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.
