What This Husband Did For Her Wife On Her Final Chemotherapy Session Will Bring Tears In Your Eyes

Most of the people are scared of the word ‘cancer’. Especially when one of your loved ones is diagnosed with any cancer diseases. Cancer damages you both emotionally and physically but if you start the medication in early stages, it increases the survival chance of the patient. Here we are talking about a mother and wife, Alissa Bousquet who was diagnosed with the breast cancer. She had no symptoms of this disease and when this news came out, it really shocked her husband and the entire family.

Her husband, Brad never gave up and always used to be with her but what surprised everyone is when he did something amazing on Alissa’s final chemotherapy session.

The last session
Alissa was finishing her final chemotherapy session so Brad planned to celebrate this by doing something special for his wife. His wife was waiting for her chemotherapy session to end just like other sessions but what she didn’t was the touching gesture from her husband that brought the hospital patients to tears.

This couple always believe in charity and their foundation help other patients too
Brad and Alissa Bousquet live in a small town. Usually, in small towns, everyone knows your business. And when you are in need of support and a helping hand, there’s nowhere else you would rather be. Both of them wanted to do something good for the community and started fundraising. When Brad reached out to his tiny town of Oakland, several of its 1,244 residents were happy to contribute.

Both husband and wife started charity when Alissa was already fighting cancer
The charity of choice is the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The couple raised money while Alissa was still fighting her illness.

The surprise was waiting
Fortunately, Alissa’s chemotherapy session was successful and cancer went into remission. But Brad had a surprise to celebrate this moment. He was stunned by his wife’s bravery throughout her treatment. “She has amazed me with her strength, courage and positive attitude,” he wrote on Facebook. He also added, “I wanted to do something special to show her the tremendous love and support.”

Brad asked his friends and neighbors to donate roses but with a purpose 
Brad explains on Facebook. “I asked my friends and Alissa’s friends to help surprise my wife by giving her roses on her last chemotherapy session.” But a single rose wasn’t what he had in his mind.

The beautiful surprise
Brad contacted a florist for this sweet surprise. His plan was to allow people to buy a single rose for a donation of $10. Not only his wife will receive those roses but a cancer charity would benefit from the profits raised, too.

Alissa was little confused
When family members started giving her roses it was kind of obvious and she was expecting that. At first, her two teenage daughters with some of her best friends came with their roses. But she was little confused when she received not just couples of roses but hundreds of colorful roses.

Hundreds of roses
The florist had been simply overwhelmed with orders. Brad’s plan was successful and it quickly hit the hundredth mark, and then, passed 300. When it reached 500 orders, Brad told the florist that he could stop taking the orders.

Along with the roses, patients received a special note
The note read, “My family would like to give you the gift of roses. I hope they add joy to your day. I know too well what families face when they have a loved one touched by cancer. If there is one thing I have learned from this journey it is that the support of friends and family is priceless.”

The tears of joy
Brad said that one of his favorite moments from that day was seeing the tears of joy that came from surprised patients as they accepted his special delivery. He was also happy to see how touched her wife was by this gesture. “I had no clue first of all that he was doing it,” Alissa Bousquet told ABC News. “He did so well. I was in such shock.”

Alissa’s fight is not over yet
Sure, the last chemotherapy session went successful but Alissa’s fight is not over as she has to face more surgery in future. Her husband hopes that she will be cancer-free before the end of the year.

Isn’t this a great story? Who would have thought that complete strangers and a husband who is already worried about his wife’s survival would be willing to lend a hand to someone they do not know.
