4-year-old Abby has spends a lot of time in the hospital fighting an aggressive form of childhood cancer. Her battle for survival is no easy task, but the medical staff at Albany Medical Center came up with the sweetest way to encourage her.
When Abby expressed to her mom the desire to marry Matt Hickling, one of the nurses who cared for her, I’m sure the notion got a laugh or two. Abby’s mom shared the cute intention with Hickling, and the big-hearted hospital staff responded in the best way. In just 24 hours, the medical staff at Albany Medical Center planned an impromptu “wedding” for little Abby and nurse Matt, complete with a cake, a ‘tuxedo’ for Hickling and flowers– ordered last-minute from a local florist.
