BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. —

A local cancer patient was reunited with a woman she calls her angel.

She said a nurse seemed to have come out of nowhere, and provided her with the strength needed to go on.

The patient had to go on a search for that nurse, making the reunion all the more special.

The meeting was an emotional one.

Nurse Debbie Cash didn’t quite know what she was walking into at Holmes Regional Medical Center on Thursday, but she vividly remembers cancer patient Shellie Chapman, even though the two spent only 20 minutes together about a year ago.

“You have no idea what you meant for us. For me. That was a really rough 20 minutes. I know. I know,” cancer survivor Shellie Chapman said.

Chapman had just undergone a difficult procedure, and felt alone and desperate in the recovery room.

“It just came natural to her. She sat down and hugged me for 20 minutes. She whispered over and over again, ‘you’re stronger than you think you are,'” Chapman said.

Those words have kept Chapman going ever since — but the two lost contact after that.

Chapman tracked her down, and with the help of her employer, Sonny’s Barbecue, held a luncheon for Cash on Thursday. Both now feel a special bond.

Cash knows there are moments when a patient needs more than just medicine.
