Nurses and other medics did not want the day to go uncelebrated so they organized a small party and took photos of the memorable moment.

They pushed Giancarlo’s bed next to his wife’s and as soon as he was close to her, he stretched his hand and reached out for Sandra’s grip.

The two were together even in thick times and clutched onto each other without looking at one another’s face.
