Meet Brad Bousquet, whose wife Alissahasjust completed her last round of chemotherapy at Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center in Omaha, Nebraska.
As Bousquet explained in a , he wanted to do something special during this last treatment to celebrate the end of her chemo, and to show her the tremendous love and support she had from her friends and family.
Not only that, he also wanted tohonor her fight against cancer by providing a donation in her name towards breast cancer research.
Not just sending her a couple of flowers, butsecretly sending a text to several of herfriends and family, asking them to help himsurprise her by showering her in roses during her last treatment.
He arranged for alocal flower shop to take the orders, and each rose was purchased for $10 with all of the proceeds being donated to Susan G. Komen towards breast cancer research.
“I was amazed when the orders started rolling in!” . “We quickly reached 100 roses, then 300 roses, then 400.”
When they reached 500 roses, he told the flower shop to stop ordering roses and let all the remaining orders go entirely to the Susan G. Komen donation.
All in all,170 families came together and ended up raising over $4,500 for breast cancer research.
The flower shop placed the roses in 36 vases and then put them in six small wicker baskets, with Alissas two teenaged daughters and four close friendsmaking the delivery.
“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.”
And one of our favorite parts was that it was all caught on tape so that we can all enjoy this awesome gesture as well.
