VIDEO: Guthrie hosts wedding for elderly oncology patient in her hospital room

(Sayre, PA) – Staff at Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital came together this week to make a meaningful in the lives of a patient and her new husband. Sharon Schneider, 81, of Elmira, N.Y., has been fighting metastatic bladder cancer at Guthrie’s Robert Packer Hospital. Sharon’s boyfriend, Frank Campos, knew the disease would not leave them with much more quality time, so he proposed to her in her hospital room.  

Staff quickly came together to provide the couple with a special ceremony complete with flowers, cake, decorations, and music. Sharon and Frank were married on Tuesday, August 3, while Sharon’s care team witnessed the special union.  

 

Megan Kyc, social worker at Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital said, “I love what I do and I was honored to be a part of such a special celebration. Today was a true demonstration of what it means to all of us as caregivers to make a meaningful difference.”
