Nurse Adopts Patient's Son After She Dies of Cancer

November 16, 2016

in 2014, Tricia Seaman was assigned to care for patient Tricia Somers. The two women instantly became very close friends.

After spending only three weeks in the hospital, Somers received the devastating news that her cancer was terminal. Somers asked Seaman if she would adopt her son, Wesley, after her passing. Seaman was initially shocked, but graciously agreed to help her best friend out in any way possible. After Somers passed, the Seamans kept their promise and adopted Wesley as one of their own.

Though Somers is no longer with them, they make sure her memory will always remain.
