Dying Mom Asked Nurse a Life-Changing Question. She Said Yes.


Sometimes, fate puts the right people in our path at the moment that we need it most. This is an example of one of those times.

Tricia Seaman, a nurse at Pinnacle Health’s Community General Campus in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, met Tricia Somers, a single mother suffering from terminal liver cancer, while caring for her at work, according to ABC 27 News. One day, Somers, who was desperately concerned about who would care for her 8-year-old son Wesley when she passed, asked Seaman a life-changing question. She asked the nurse if she would take care of her son when she was gone.

Remarkably, her answer was yes. Seaman’s family had already been considering adopting another child before Somers even made the request.

“She came in, and I just felt this overwhelming feeling of comfort,” Somers told the outlet. “I was just like ‘she’s going to take care of me. She’s the one.'”

Now, the two families have merged together in a beautiful alliance.
