SAN DIEGO, Calif. (KTLA) — Five-year-old “Iron” Gideon Robinson is battling leukemia, but he’s not fighting alone. Along with family, friends and his doctors, Gideon also has “Tall Sarah,” on his side — a nurse he has grown especially close to. So close, in fact, that Gideon asked Sarah to marry him with a proposal that brought the staff at Rady Children`s Hospital in San Diego to tears.

“I want to make her laugh, because she thinks I’m such a funny boy,” said the five-year-old.”
