Meet five-year-old Gideon Robinson.  Tiny little Gideon lives in California and is being treated for acute lymphoblastic leukaemia at the Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego. It was here that he met the love of his life, his nurse, an angel he calls “Tall Sarah.”

In the ultimate declaration of love, little Gideon, or ‘Iron’ to his family and friends, got down on bended knee and proposed to the woman who made his challenging hospital days so much brighter.

Watch the moment that Gideon proposes to Tall Sarah and at such a young age, unlocks the key to a happy and long-lasting relationship. “I wanna make her laugh,” says Gideon, “cos she thinks I’m such a funny boy.”

Congratulations Gideon – you deserve all the happiness in the world!
