I hope you have some tissues handy. There’s no way you’re going to make it through this touching story without shedding a tear or two (or, you know, even more than a few).

This husband went to great lengths to commemorate the last day of chemo treatment for his wife. Alissa Bousquet is fighting breast cancer, and her husband wanted to do something extra special for her after completing such a huge step in the recovery process.

His generous gift showed not just how much he cared, but also how much support the entire town was ready to provide for Bousquet and others battling or effected by breast cancer.

After contacting the local florist, Brad Bousquet set it up so that roses would be sold for $10 a piece. All proceeds went to the Susan G. Komen foundation.

Word spread and on the last day of chemotherapy, 500 roses were delivered to his wife and $4,500 was donated to the foundation in Alissa’s name, according to the Huffington Post.

“She has amazed me with her strength, courage, and positive attitude through it all. She still has a few surgeries ahead of her but completing chemotherapy is huge milestone in her journey,” Brad Bousquet wrote on YouTube. “I 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 has from her friends and family.”

And I’d say he did a pretty great job of doing just that.
