Every story has something unique and teaches us life changing lessons, but there are some which are so special that they touch us to the core and stay with us for the rest of our lives. When we first hear of a story like the one below, we get stunned and start calculating the possibilities of it being true. We wonder how a 29-year-old can be married to a 4-year-old, but the truth is far beyond our imagination.
This is Matt Hickling, the groom of this story, who is 29 years old. He works as a nurse at the ‘Albany Medical Center’.
And this is Abby Sayles, the 4-year-old bride of Matt. She is suffering from leukemia, and is a chemo patient who visits Matt for her treatment.
Abby, on learning about her uncle’s marriage, wished to get married and chose Matt as her groom.
Matt did not want to dishearten the little princess and boarded the wedding plan.
On the day of marriage, they exchanged candy rings and cut a cake, and when they walked down the aisle all hummed wedding tunes.
According to Abby’s mother, her daughter did not want to go for the chemo sessions until Matt appeared.
However, she now willingly goes to the hospital and gets the treatment done.
This was a wedding gift for Abby by Matt.
With the regularity of treatment, the little girl is on the path of recovery.
This has given her family some hope that their daughter will be fine soon.
Matt said, “Once you build a relationship with them, they can go farther along.”
We feel Matt is doing a great job and he is one of the major factors in Abby’s recovery. If you think on the same line, share this story and help nurses to understand the patients better.
