The feeling of loneliness, sadness and uncertainty about the future are some of the emotions that hospital patients may experience, especially if they have been undergoing their treatments for a long time, and that is why some people think of making a difference with a simple but significant gesture.
Mickael was born and raised in Pedreiras, Maranhão (Brazil). He moved to the state of Ceará, in the same country, after receiving a scholarship to go to university and fulfill his dream of becoming a doctor. At the same time he has the talent to play different musical instruments, among them the keyboard, the guitar and the accordion.
He, who wants to become a doctor, decided to bring the accordion to the Pirambu Emergency Unit to bring joy to the patients with his music. This special moment soon went viral, after he posted a video on his Instagram account of the emotional occasion.
The young man said in an interview that the original idea came from the doctor Thais Leão and that with his cousin, Dr. Tarcylio, they asked people if they would like the idea and they said yes. “Many patients were excited and happy,” Michael said.
“A patient spent the morning crying after being hospitalized, and when I started playing she got up smiling and started filming me.”
