WATCH: Nurse sings dying patient’s favourite song to comfort her
An incredible footage has captured a beautiful moment when a nurse sings special song for a dying cancer patient to comfort her in hospital bed.
The nurse’s extremely kind gesture has won million hearts on the internet after the video was shared on Facebook and YouTube.
Margaret Smith, 63, of Nashville, Tennessee in the US, reportedly suffered from liver cancer for about a year and was too ill to survive a transplant.
Holding her patient’s hand, nurse Olivia Nuefelder sung Ms Smith her favorite song Dancing in the Sky, by Dani and Lizzy, in her hospital bed.
Video shows the nurse fight back tears as she sings the woman the comforting tune.
Ms Smith’s family have called the young nurse an “angel” for the compassionate gesture, which helped put the woman at ease.
Footage of Olivia Nuefelder sitting beside the woman and singing sweetly to the patient has moved many of the almost four million people who have viewed the video her daughter shared on Facebook last Monday.
“This nurse sat with my mom for hours while the medicine from too much Anesthesia and sang a very special song to my sweet mother to comfort her. You never left her side by choice!!” Megan Smith wrote with the post.
“Your dedication to your patients is beyond any that I have seen, you truly are a beam of light and I cannot thank you enough for the compassion and care and love you shared for my mother. God bless you Olivia!”
