An emotional video of a Vanderbilt University Medical Center nurse singing to a terminal cancer patient is making the rounds online.
A couple of weeks ago, 63-year-old Margaret Smith was admitted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center due to a rapid decline in health. She had been suffering from liver cancer for about a year.
After a procedure, she waited for a liver transplant, but doctors told her that her health was in too poor shape for a transplant.
“You never left her side by choice!” Smith wrote. “Words cannot describe the appreciation and love we feel for nurse Olivia who mom calls her angel!”
She was later moved to a nursing home in Cookeville, where she died Wednesday, but before leaving the hospital, a nurse shared a special moment by singing to Smith.
Nurse Olivia sang “Dancing in the Sky” by Dani and Lizzy, which was Margaret’s favorite song.
