Four-year-old cancer patient 'marries' favourite nurse
NEW YORK (Web Desk) - A four-year-old cancer patient’s dreams came true when she got to "marry" her favourite nurse complete with cake, rings, pink toy car and rose petals, reported The Independent.

Abby, a patient at Albany Medical Centre in New York, ‘wed’ Matt Hickling, one of the nurses treating her for leukaemia at the hospital, in a ceremony organised by staff.

Abby, clad in a white princess gown and holding a bouquet, was walked by her mother down an aisle of pink rose petals towards Matt, wearing a tuxedo t-shirt.


Their hot pink car was decked out with cans and a 'just married' sign, and the couple shared a messy slices of cake.





The wedding was organised in just 24 hours. Most of the hospital staff attended the ceremony and they hummed the wedding march as Abby began to move down the aisle – before running to Matt for a hug and exchanging rings.



Matt wrote on Facebook: "Our patient shyly asked me to marry her. I didn't hesitate to say yes, I got a HUGE hug and we sealed the deal with ring pops being placed on our fingers!"
