A heartfelt video of a nurse from Vanderbilt University Medical singing to a cancer patient went viral on Thursday. Smith said Nuefelder sat with her mother for hours as her anesthesia wore off. She'd been suffering from liver cancer for about a year and doctors said she was too sick to survive a transplant.

Smith's daughter, Megan, shared a touching and emotional video on Facebook of the nurse holding her mother's hand and singing her a song.

A United States family shared a moving video, which has been viewed millions of times, of an "angel" nurse who sang a patient's favourite song to her as she lay dying of cancer.

After a procedure, Smith waited for a liver transplant, but was told her health was in too poor shape to undergo the transplant surgery.

She was later moved to a nursing home in Cookeville, where she died Wednesday, but before leaving the hospital, a nurse made a special moment by singing to Smith.

At one point, nurse Neufelder is seen wiping the tears from her face as she sings. Smith wrote of the nurse.

"Your dedication to your patients is beyond any that I have seen", Smith wrote.

'God bless you Olivia!

The video also became a hit amongst Twitter users who posted their reactions.

"Miss Marg has touched my heart in such an indescribable way". (I hope you all share this so it can find its way back to nurse Olivia in Vanderbilt)'. "My thoughts and prayers are forever with this awesome family", Neufelder said in a Facebook post.

The video posted to Facebook has been viewed more than 3.5 million times and counting.
