It’s difficult to watch your loved one battling an illness.
Yet, here’s a husband who managed to encourage and support his wife throughout the journey.
As a husband of a wife who went through several surgeries and chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer, Brad shows one of the best ways to show support and love.
Since 2015, Alissa has been battling breast cancer by going through chemotherapy treatment at the Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center in Omaha.
When it was the day of Alissa’s last chemo treatment, Brad wanted to do something special for his wife. As he wrote on Facebook,
“she still has a few surgeries ahead of her, but completing chemotherapy is a huge milestone in her journey.”
So, Brad got help from his friends and family to celebrate the end of her chemo treatment.
“I asked them to help me surprise her by showering her in roses during her last treatment. I arranged for our local flower shop to take the orders.
Each rose was purchased for $10, with all of the proceeds belong donated to Susan G. Komen research center towards breast cancer research.”
Brad knew that people would be more than willing to help him with this touching surprise. However, he didn’t know THIS would happen.
“We quickly reached 100 roses, then 300 roses, then 400. When we reached 500 roses, I told the flower shop to stop ordering roses and let all the remaining orders go entirely to the Susan G. Komen donation,” wrote Brad.
A total of $4500 were raised for breast cancer research, with more than 170 families calling to order roses for Alissa.
“After presenting the rose baskets to my wife, we shared them with the other cancer patients receiving treatment today as a gift from our family. The joy of sharing these roses with the other cancer patients was one of my favorite parts. Many had tears as they read the card I wrote for them,” said Brad.
