4-Year-Old Cancer Patient 'Marries' Her Favorite Nurse

Published by Huffington Post on Sun, 19 Jul 2015


Chemotherapy treatments aren't something most people look forward to. But thanks to anurse by the name of Matt Hickling, 4-year-old Abby Sayles doesn't seem to mind them. She especially looked forward to her session last Thursday, when, thanks to the hospital staff at the Albany Medical Center, she"married" Hickling in an impromptu wedding:Video of the lighthearted ceremony, shared on the Albany Medical Center's Facebook page, shows Abby entering the hospital room along with a handful of nurses who served as bridesmaids. A local florist donated a bouquet, corsages and a boutonnierefor the occasion, reports the Albany Times Union, along with a puppy-shaped basket of flowers. While the "groom" didn't have a suit for the occasion, he did sport the next best thing: a tuxedo t-shirt. "Our patient shyly asked me to marry her," Hickling recalled in a post on his Facebook page. "I didn't hesitate to say yes, I got a HUGE hug and we sealed the deal with ring pops being placed on our fingers!"
