Mother Days Away From Brain Surgery Breaks Down With Emotion After Husband Surprises Her at Home

A husband was met with tears after coming home early from his trucking route to surprise his wife two days before her brain surgery.

Video captured by Kassidy Gilmore shows her mom fall to the ground in emotion when her stepdad arrived with flowers to surprise her mother at their home in Port St. Lucie, Floridia.

Glimore told Storyful she helped her stepdad execute the surprise after he texted her that morning to let her know his plan.

“The reason that mom cried so hard is because she did not have to go through brain surgery alone,” Gilmore said.

“She had her husband back to lean on… They need each other to get through this life.” Credit: Kassidy Gilmore via Storyful
