Her husband Brad decided to get friends together to make his wife's last chemo treatment a truly momentous occasion. He spoke to a local florist and asked if they could raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation while giving his wife a memorable last treatment. 

"I spoke to our florist in Oakland and said 'Why don't we just raise money for breast cancer research at the same time and have everybody purchase a rose for $10 apiece with anything left over going straight to the Susan G Komen Foundation,'" Brad said to NBC affiliate WOWT.

Brad's idea raised $4,700 for the foundation, which they said was an invaluable resource for the family when they received her heartbreaking diagnosis.
