A 4-year-old girl who battled leukemia got to enjoy a very special night for her own "wedding reception."
Abby Sayles, 4, is battling childhood leukemia. This summer, as Abby underwent treatment, she asked her favorite nurse Matt Hickling to "marry her." That informal ceremony helped raise Abby's spirits as she continued her treatment.
This month Abby got an even bigger celebration: she had a "wedding reception" complete with a fancy white dress and first dance. The celebration was more than just a party; it was a fundraiser for the Nicks Fight to be Healed, a foundation that offers financial support to pediatric cancer patients and their families.

"It really was a true honor to be involved in this event," Hickling wrote on Facebook.
He told ABC News affiliate WTEN-TV that he was a little nervous about the dance.
"We actually had rehearsal for this one, so I'm getting a little jittery to see if I donít mess up on the lead," Hickling told WTEN-TV.
The pair danced in front of the big crowd and Abby even got to wear her favorite shoes.
"My sparkly shoes are my favorite because they have Dora inside of them," Abby told WTEN-TV.
