Man Surprises His Girlfriend Battling Cancer With Marriage Proposal On Live Television

Get your tissues ready.

Before a commercial break on Australian live TV show, The Project, host Carrie Bickmore took a moment to recognize a special member of the audience.

"We just wanted to give a shout-out to one of our audience members tonight who's here with us," Bickmore says. "She's had a huge year — she's been battling breast cancer, she's almost finished her chemo, we know you're a huge fan of the show, Tara ... we just wanted to say to you keep fighting, good luck, we're all behind you."

With that, the camera turns to Tara and her boyfriend, Jarrod, who has a special surprise in store for his girlfriend.


"Tara is probably the strongest, most toughest [sic] person I've ever met. She's the best mum, she's the best partner, she's my best friend. We make the best team," Jarrod says before getting down on one knee to pop the question — all on television.

With her hands covering her mouth, Tara appears shocked and filled with emotion, and then accepts Jarrod's marriage proposal. 

Following the proposal, Bickmore tweeted:

For the full proposal, check out the video below, starting at around 3:10:

Congratulations Tara and Jarrod!
