Couple Reschedules Wedding Due To Hurricane Florence, Donates Flowers To Cancer Patients

"As each patient finished their chemotherapy or infusion treatment, they got to take their pick of the beautiful arrangements."

Across the Carolinas, many people have been impacted by Hurricane Florence. Strangers around the country are stepping up to help those in need by literally lining up to foster animals and by offering free housing via Facebook and Airbnb.

One couple named Chris and Amber found a way to spread some cheer after being impacted by the storm themselves. The couple from Concord, NC were due to be married, but had to reschedule their wedding because of the severe weather. Given the last minute change of plans some things were already prepared for the wedding, including the flowers.

The couple and their florist didn't want to see the flowers go to waste, so they decided to donate them to a local cancer institute.

The Levine Cancer Institute received the donation and shared the news on Facebook on September 15. They explained, "As each patient finished their chemotherapy or infusion treatment, they got to take their pick of the beautiful arrangements."

Photos show patients choosing their flowers with big smiles on their faces. There is also a handwritten note from the couple.

WCNC reports that the couple wishes to remain anonymous. Many are sending them messages through the media and social media. Patient Patricia Riser wanted to send her wishes to them and express what the donation means. "I think it's wonderful that you thought enough of someone else, especially during this time that you're going through because you had to cancel your wedding ... " she told WFTV9

"It’s just amazing that people can do that when they’re going through things, too, and we learned that not only are we going through something but other people go through things, too."

"Our patients were so happy to receive flowers! It definitely made a very dreary day brighter," wrote Jessica Carlascio on Facebook.

Other Facebook users are praising the couple for their kind deed and wishing them the best in their upcoming wedding.

The Levine Cancer Institute reveals, "The couple will be getting married next month, rain or shine!"
