Entire Neighborhood Gathers to Celebrate Woman’s Last Chemo Session
It was a tough year for 45-year-old Amy Kleiner, who was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year. She had a mastectomy on Valentine’s Day and had to go through several rounds of chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
Considering her difficult journey, Kleiner’s best friend and neighbor Tera Kiser thought that every milestone in Kleiner’s life should be celebrated, which is why she made sure that the entire neighborhood would be present to send Amy off on her last round of chemotherapy, inviting them via Facebook.
In a video posted by ABC News, Kleiner can be seen completely surprised when she opened her garage door and saw her neighbors lined up on the street holding colorful balloons and placards and cheering her on.
“I have never been so blown away in all of my life. I was just in shock. I was so surprised and I was so happy. It was the last one, and I just felt loved,” Kleiner told ABC News.
Kiser was joyous that she was able to make the moment very meaningful for her best friend who suffered so much, yet didn’t complain and continued to fight bravely.
“She’s so selfless and so sweet, I just wanted to make it a big deal for her. More than anything else, I wanted her to know, ‘You’ve done it, this day is here and now we’re going to put this part of our day behind us and move forward. Let’s just go and get this last one treatment and get you feeling better,’” Kiser said.
Kiser, who was in charge of sending Kleiner to Mercy Health-Anderson Hospital for her last chemo, decorated her van with words of encouragement and pink ribbons. Before they drive off, Kleiner showed her appreciation by hugging everyone who came to support her.
The neighbors also released several balloons, each one signifying a chemo treatment that Kleiner accomplished in her fight with cancer.
Kiser and Kleiner’s friendship is definitely one for the books.
“I told my kids, ‘This is what you do when you love your friends. You have to be a cheerleader and pick them up and show them that they’re not alone” Kiser told the Inside Edition.
