Emotional video of nurse singing to cancer patient goes viral

Megan Smith shared the video on Monday, showing nurse Olivia Nuefelder embracing her mother, Margaret, at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. The 63-year-old was in the final days of her battle with liver cancer.

The disastrous minute was gotten on camera by Margaret's family companion, Crystal Hamilton, and shows Olivia singing Dancing In The Sky by Dani and Lizzy while holding her patient's hand.

Margaret's daughter posted a video of the touching moment on Facebook, where it's been viewed almost three million times. Smith wrote of the nurse.

A video of a nurse singing to a patient in a hospital bed has now gone viral on Facebook.

The video has since racked up 3.5 million views.

Olivia composed on Facebook: "Miss Marg has touched my heart in such an unbelievable way". I am so humbled and honored to be a Nurse. Smith wrote in the post.

"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". Roberts said Neufelder sang to Smith any time she asked. "God bless you Olivia!"

"There was nearly a sense of peace knowing that it was her favorite song and she did tell me it's the song she wants played at her funeral", she said.

Nuefelder said that the moment captured on video was an emotional one, "knowing that this could be the last time I was singing to her".

Margaret was later moved from the hospital to a nursing home, where she reportedly died on Wednesday.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help Margaret's family with funeral expenses.
