This is 4-year-old Abby from New York. Abby is battling pre-B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, which is a form of leukemia that mostly affects children. She is a patient at the Melodies Center for Childhood Cancers, a specialized clinic in New York. Even though she is fighting for her life, the little one remains optimistic, while a dangerous illness takes its toll on her health.
Over time as she received treatment at the hospital, Abby developed a sweet relationship with her favorite nurse, Matt Hickling. So much so, in fact, that she decided she wanted to marry him.
Abby told her mother about her marriage plans and explained that at her next visit, she planned to put a ring on his finger. When Matt learned of the little one’s plans, he was immediately struck with a brilliant idea. He knew how much it would lift her spirits, so he began crafting a plan for a “wedding” for Abby.
