Four Year Old Cancer Patient Gets ‘Married’ To Her Favourite Nurse

By : Rebecca Knight |



One four year old cancer sufferer Abby Sayles had the day of her dreams when staff at Melodies Center in Albany, New York, pulled together a fairy tale princess ‘wedding’ for her.

Matt Hckings is Abby’s favourite nurse, and someone who she has developed a special connection with while receiving treatment in hospital, and when Matt realised how much Abby loved him, he and the rest of the hospital staff decided to give her a very special surprise.

Matt and Abby got ‘married’ and the leukaemia sufferer was able to be a princess for a day and at least have her mind taken off the health worries that she faces.


Matt claimed:

Being three when she was diagnosed, is something that’s tough for somebody.

It really is heart-warming, especially when you consider what the poor girl has to go through on a daily basis just to try and stay alive, and the fact that the nurse has gone out of his way to put a smile on her face restores your faith in humanity.
