Chemo sucks. Chapped lips, hair loss, fatigue, upset stomach — it can drain a patient, and fast. This is why every person who goes through chemo deserves a celebration! And this lucky Wisconsin woman got quite the celebration.

While undergoing chemotherapy at the UW Carbone Cancer Center, Ann Trachtenberg jokingly told her family that she wanted a marching band to escort her out the door on her last day. Little did she know, her niece took that joke to heart…

Congratulations on your final chemo treatment, Ann! <3
