Mayo Clinic Nurses Help Dying Mother See Daughter’s Wedding

Some women hire wedding planners, florists, musicians and photographers to create an amazing wedding. This bride relied on a small group of nurses at the Mayo Clinic.

Amy Ciezran-Shaw’s cancer treatment was going well so she thought she’d have no problem making it to her daughter’s wedding in November.

She received devastating news in August. Complications arose and it became clear that Amy wouldn’t make it to the wedding. Amy’s team at Mayo knew how important seeing her daughter get married was so they suggested moving the wedding date up.

The story was shared by Mayo’s ‘In the Loop’ newsletter and explains that the wedding was truly a team effort. Amy’s support staff decided to hold the wedding in the atrium right outside of her hospital room. One nurse spent her lunch break cutting flowers from her personal garden to bring in to make floral arrangements, another nurse offered to play guitar during the ceremony, and a critical care medicine specialist helped pay for the wedding cake.

On Sunday, Sept. 3rd Allison grabbed her Mom’s hand and the two made the short walk to greet Allison’s fiance. The wedding was described as “incredible.”  See pictures and read more about the special team that made this magical day possible, here.

Amy can watch the newlyweds’ journeys from above now. She passed away on Friday, Sept. 22.
