Watch: Wisconsin marching band surprises cancer patient after last treatment

UW Carbone Center on Facebook

What a wonderful gesture by the University of Wisconsin Marching Band.

As related by the UW Carbone Cancer Center in Madison, Ann Trachtenberg joked to her niece that she would love a marching band to greet her on her way out of her last chemotherapy treatment at the hospital.

Trachtenberg's nice was all ears, apparently, and the result is the heartwearming video below. Wisconsin fans have always viewed their marching band as one of the best around, and here's yet another reason to take pride.
