Nurse Sings Song To Give Dying Patient Hope To Keep Fighting
A caring male nurse fought back the tears to sing a dying patient a song to give her hope so she’d keep on fighting. Stephen Newbern stood next to Lidia Humpert, aged 73, and held her hand as he sang ‘Be A Lion’ from The Wiz to her at Noland Hospital in Anniston, Alabama. Lidia, who was in hospital with terminal cancer, was due to head home to spend her last days with her family, so her family were there to bring her home. While Stephen, a U.S. Air Force veteran, was saying goodbye, he told Lidia he’d like to sing her a song and she could sing along if she knew the words, before gently singing the famous tune. The heartfelt moment was caught on camera by Lidia’s granddaughter Brianna O’Cull.
