Heartwarming video of 'angel' nurse singing to dying patient
A nurse won herself a place in heaven after singing a beautiful song to a dying patient who lost the battle against cancer.
This emotional video of a nurse from the Vanderbilt University Medical Center singing very tenderly a patient with cancer has become a phenomenon in social networks, adding on Facebook more than 3.6 million views in a few days.
In October 2017, Margaret Smith, 63, entered this medical center due to a rapid deterioration of her health as a result of liver cancer that she has been suffering for about a year.
She was waiting for a liver transplant, which doctors discouraged because of his delicate state of health. There was no turning back, cancer had won the battle and Margaret would be moved to a Cookeville nursing home.
Before leaving the medical center, a nurse named Olivia Neufelder decided to dismiss Margaret in a very special way, singing "Dancing In The Sky" by Dani and Lizzy. A beautiful moment that a friend of Margaret captured with her cell phone camera.
Crystal Hamilton Roberts, who posted the video, was a friend of Margaret's for 15 years and was by her side when Margaret was diagnosed with cancer a year ago. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa
The publication of Hamilton is accompanied by a text that reveals the gratitude to Olivia Neufleder that the friend of Margaret Smith wanted to highlight, with words like "this is another video of the sweetest nurse in history."
"Olivia sang for Margaret when she asked," says Hamilton in his social network, "she never said 'give me a moment, I would do it, but now I do not have time'". "The definition of a nurse for our family will be Olivia", concludes the text.
"She did not feel like a patient at the time, Olivia Neufelder wanted her to know that she was loved, even if her family could not be there," said this friend.
Margaret died this past Wednesday. The video of Olivia singing to Margaret has become the best tribute for this woman, whose funeral will count on the nurse singing that song again.
People with enough strength to support others on their dying bed deserve a special place in heaven. Those moments are the hardest for the patients, their family, and friends.
Look at this lovely story of a teenager who stood beside her boyfriend's hospital bed until the last minute to see what we are talking about.
Singing is one of the best ways to soothe an aching heart, and also one of the best ways to calm the fear that produces the expectative of an imminent death.
