Remember your first childhood crush? Or when you told your mother you’d one day marry the boy next door? For one special 4-year-old girl, that dream was made a reality this week — the reason why is incredible.
When watching the video below, it’s not difficult to see why it had been viewed millions of times within hours of being posted. In it, we watch as bridesmaids walk an isle of rose petals as onlookers hum the Wedding March. Then the bride — a tiny little girl clad in a pink princess dress — turns the corner, her face covered in a hospital mask. Bouquet in hand, she runs toward the outstretched arms of her “groom” — her favorite male nurse who’s been treating her for Leukemia.
“So today I got to help make a 4 year old leukemia [sic] patient’s ‘wedding’ to her favorite nurse Matt Hickling happen at the Melodies Center for Childhood Cancers at AMC,” wrote Lori Ciafardoni in her Facebook post with the video. “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,” she wrote, “is why we go into nursing.”
