Husband surprises wife with 500 roses to celebrate her last round of chemo

Craft Corner: Decorative Faux Flower Letters

Why gift a dozen roses when you can give hundreds?

Brad Bousquet's wife Alissa just completed her last round of chemotherapy at Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center in Omaha, Nebraska. To celebrate the milestone, Brad presented her with 500 — yes, 500 — roses in a whopping 36 vases.

Alissa's reaction? A lot of "holy moly."

Brad wrote in a Facebook post that to gather the blooms, he arranged for a local flower shop to take rose orders from friends and family.

The shop sold each rose for $10, which was then donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
