A 5-year-old California boy battling leukemia is going viral for one heartwarming moment captured on video at the hospital.
Gideon Robinson, also known to family and friends as “Iron,” proposed to one of his favorite nurses at the Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego.
“I bend my knee down and then I pulled the ring out, put it on her finger, and then it was over,” the boy told KTLA, adding that he wasn’t nervous.
The moment, reminiscent to the 4-year-old patient who also wanted to marry her nurse, made those watching emotional. And of course the nurse, whom he calls “Tall Sarah,” accepted the adorable offer.
Gideon’s intention was simply to put a smile on the nurse’s face, something his mom says he enjoys doing.
“He has always been the type of kid that tries to make others happy, regardless of his struggles,” his mom, Sosy Robison, told the Daily Mail. “It truly brings him joy, and it definitely makes me feel very proud to be the mom of a special little man who has a heart that’s the size of a mountain.”
