Watch Four-Year-Old Cancer Patient 'Marry' Her Favorite Nurse


Four-year-old Abby has leukemia and always had a special connection to her nurse, Matt. On Thursday, she got to marry the man of her dreams in a touching "wedding" ceremony at the Albany Medical Hospital.

The video was posted on Facebook and in less than 24 hours, has already been seen by over eight million times. Abby's mom wrote on Facebook that her daughter kept saying she was marrying her favorite nurse Matt, so she text-messaged him and mentioned what her daughter kept saying.

The only message she got back was, 'We're planning a wedding tomorrow,' and then on Thursday at the Melodies Center For Childhood Cancers, little Abby had nurses for bridesmaids, a bouquet, rose petals, and prince charming waiting.

Abby and Matt wore 'Ring Pops,' fed each other cake and even had a decorated car. Matt wrote on Facebook, 'This day will hopefully be one our patient and her family can always look back on and smile when days are tough, I know I will.'
