HARRISBURG, Pa. — When a woman was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer, her biggest concern was making sure her young son was taken care of.

According to ABC News, Tricia Somers was a single mom and took care of her son, Wesley, 8, alone; her parents had died years before.

When Somers was in the hospital for her treatments, she befriended a nurse, Tricia Seaman. One day when Seaman was visiting Somers, the mother asked her: “If I die, will you raise my son?”

Initially, Seaman told Somers she was flattered, but didn’t have a straight answer.

After being at Somers’ side during physically taxing chemotherapy, and spending a lot of time with Wesley, she felt like Somers had become her family.

Somers is now being taken care of by Seaman and her family. And when Somers passes away, Seaman and her husband will become Wesley’s legal guardians.
