Video: Wisconsin band escorts patient from final treatment

Hearing a story of someone beating cancer is always a way to put a smile on your face. This Wisconsin cancer patient was finishing up her last round of chemotherapy when she got the surprise of a lifetime.

USA Today’s For The Win shared a video of Ann Trachtenburg leaving the UW Carbone Cancer Center in style. She had joked weeks before her final treatment that she would love to be escorted out by a marching band. Her niece took the joke seriously and got the Wisconsin marching band to play her out of the office.

The UW Carbone Cancer Center also shared the emotional celebration on their Facebook page. It is always nice to see someone pull through a tough battle with such a horrible disease.

From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

Trachtenberg, in a red Wisconsin T-shirt, came out of the UW Carbone Cancer Center to find about a dozen members of the Badger band had already launched a rousing rendition of “On Wisconsin” to mark her milestone.

They played a couple more songs, including “When you say Wisconsin, you said it all.”

Good for you Ms. Trachtenburg. You showed bravery in your fight and you deserved the epic celebration.
