This is the heartwarming moment where a male nurse sang to a 4-year-old Leukaemia patient in order to help her sleep.
Sophia Torres was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in May of last year, and has sadly spent most of her time since inside Texas Children’s Hospital.
According to KHOU Sophia has battled through numerous surgeries, but a stroke has impacted her speech, eyesight, and ability to walk.
Thankfully Sophia is cared for by medical staff that go the extra mile in order to put a smile on her face.
That’s where nurse Brandon Waterhouse comes in. After Sophia was struggling to sleep Brandon sang A Whole New World from Disney’s Aladdin to help her get some rest.
Nurse Brandon singing to Sophia. It’s beautiful to see this and it shows that he loves his career. Making children smile one at a time. Keep on singing!
