One Florida man now has two reasons to celebrate.

Lucas D'Onofrio shared the moment he proposed to his high school sweetheart, Tamara, on June 6 – an occasion which coincided with her last chemotherapy treatment for Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.

In text accompanying a YouTube video of the event, he explains: “My girlfriend (now fiancé) was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma on February 13th. The doctors outlined a 6 session course in which she has done great and over the weekend when she came in for her last chemo session, I threw a big surprise proposal at the hospital.”

He added, “I hope you all enjoy it as I put lots of time and work on all of this with the help of my family, 2nd family, friends, and nurses at the Boca Raton Regional Hospital!”

Pass the tissues.
