A 4-year-old leukemia patient got the pretend wedding of her dreams to her favorite male nurse, thanks to the caring staff at Melodies Center for Childhood Cancers at Albany Medical Center in New York.

Matt Hickling and Abby have always had a great connection since the beginning of her diagnosis, reports the girl’s family on their FB community, Amazing Abby.

“I know the people at the Melodies Center… their creativity and thoughtfulness but never expected all of this.”

Abby’s response to the trail of rose pedals, wedding song, and matching ring pops for their fingers… “This is the best day ever!”Southwest jet on tarmac

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.
