Nurse sings Christmas duet with cancer patient and the video has gone viral

As we prepare to spend this festive time with those special people in our lives, we should spare a thought for those who can’t be with their families for Christmas.

Those that work over the festive period, those people who are sick and can’t go home and those who don’t have a loving family to celebrate with. It serves as a reminder how lucky most of us are and how grateful we should be.

For Penn Pennington he had to stay in his local hospital in Tennessee over Christmas to receive the chemotherapy treatment he needed.

But little did he know he had a fan in the hospital who was only too happy to help bring some Christmas cheer to his bedside.
