Video of nurse singing to dying cancer patient goes viral

However, despite these moments of joy and shared tenderness, Neufelder and Smith both knew that she would soon be moving to a nursing home, as her health continued to rapidly decline and doctors could no longer fight the war against her cancer. She said she hopes the video inspires others.

"I am so humbled and honoured to be a Nurse". "My thoughts and prayers are forever with this unbelievable family".

'You never left her side by choice! Megan Smith said about Nuefelder. "Words can not describe the appreciation and love we feel for nurse Olivia who mom calls her angel!" she said.

"Your devotion to your patients is past any that I have seen, you genuinely are a light emission and I can't thank you enough for the care and empathy and cherish you shared for my mom. God bless you Olivia!"

"But she didn't leave the hospital without the voice of an "angel" singing her on", Roberts said in her post.

Neufelder told NewsChannel5 that Smith didn't feel like a patient to her.

Her nurse, Olivia Neufelder stopped for a moment to sing Smith a song.

"I'll bet it's so nice up in heaven since you arrived".

Another nurse could be heard in the background telling Smith also not to cry.

Neufelder told Fox17 that she hoped the millions of people who watched the videos learned this: "There's always hope, there's always someone".

"Those lyrics right there bring me to tears", the nurse added. "Margaret really has helped me more than she knows", Neufelder told WTVF.

Nuefelder encouraged Smith to join in, and Smith's chin quivered as she sang.

For hours, the nurse comforted Smith as her anesthesia began to wane, CBS reported.

According to reports, Smith's mother passed away a few days after the video was taken and had battled liver cancer for a year.
