This adorable 5 Year old cancer patient proposed to his favorite nurse at a San Diego hospital
Cancer is a dangerous disease, which if not treated in time can take away a patient’s life. Many people lose faith in life in such circumstances and often suffer from depression. This is not the case with little Gideon, a five year old who has been suffering from Leukemia.
1 Spirit to Live
Gideon who is all of five and has Leukemia cancer proposed to his favorite nurse at a hospital in San Diego where he is undergoing treatment. Interestingly, the nurse Sarah Richards had been waiting for her boyfriend to propose to her soon enough.
Sosy, the mother of Gideon shared this news with media and said that Sarah was too happy to accept this proposal from the little child who has been suffering from cancer. Sarah Richards works at Rady Children’s Hospital and has been looking after Gideon ever since the boy was diagnosed with Leukemia and has been caring for him relentlessly.
Sarah has a boyfriend with whom she is to be married soon. Another nurse who was looking after Gideon asked him if he liked Sarah, he should propose to her. The little boy did not waste much time and instead proposed to Sarah.
2 Joyful Atmosphere at the Hospital
The whole idea was to turn the atmosphere at the hospital joyful as it is very difficult for a child as small as Gideon to understand the implications of having Leukemia. The hospital staff tried to lighten up the atmosphere so as to make Gideon feel at home.
Gideon’s mother Sosy said that his son was very much excited about proposing to Sarah and said that he will be marrying the nurse. Sosy said that his son said this with much enthusiasm and the whole ambience of the place turned romantic and funny.
Little Gideon made every effort to turn the occasion into a special event for him and all others around him. In fact, Gideon also made a small ring from white and pink twisted pipe cleaner to impress Sarah.
Sosy said that they had planned the event to make Gideon feel happy as otherwise the whole atmosphere at the hospital is quiet stressful. They even made a video of this occasion and now with the same going viral, Sosy feels very excited and happy for his son.
3 Medical assistance needed
Cancer is a dangerous disease condition and with hospital costs building up with each passing day things are not at all easy for the family. In fact, Sosy has even set up a GoFund Me Page to help meet the rising cost of treatment of Gideon.
With the video of little Gideon going viral many major news broadcaster and media houses have expressed their interest in broadcasting the story of Gideon. Infact one of the sites which shared the plight of Gideon has received over a million views in the last few days.
Gideon’s story had its moment of glory when celebrity Ashton Kutcher shared the same on his Facebook page. This received much appreciation and support from his followers and many of them are now donating for the treatment of the little child.
Gideon is back at his home now, since his medical condition has improved a little. The family is now trying to ensure that Gideon has proper diet so that his blood count returns back to its normal level.
The family is now preparing for a radio interview of little Gideon and it is expected that the same will help the family raise some more funds to help meet the treatment cost. Meanwhile Sosy has some words of appreciation for Rady Children’s Hospital where enthusiastic staff offered all the possible help to the family to cope up with the situation and helped Gideon get back to his normal self.
