BOCA RATON, Florida — Lucas D’Onofrio’s high school sweetheart, Tamara Bruzzo, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in February.

After a six-session course of treatment, she was ready to celebrate — but little did she know, she’d be celebrating more than just the end of her chemo.

A viral video D’Onofrio posted on YouTube shows Bruzzo’s hospital room filled with heart-shaped balloons, candles and flower petals. Ed Sheeran was playing on the stereo.

As Bruzzo walked in after her treatment, IV machine in hand, magic happened.

D’Onofrio gave her roses and proposed. Fireworks were set off outside their window. She said yes.

In his YouTube post, D’Onofrio said:

“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 Hospital. Thank you to all who helped me, I couldn’t have pulled this off without your help!”
