With end to cancer treatment in sight, man celebrates with marching band

Wednesday, 15 November 2017, 12:52:38 AM. Entire high school marching band shows up to help man and his nurse celebrate the end of his cancer treatment.
In lieu of the traditional ringing of the bell, Josh Libman recently celebrated the upcoming end of his cancer treatment with tubas, drums, flutes, saxophones and pom-poms, all courtesy of the efforts of registered nurse Alane Levy. Libman, 32, of Norcross, Georgia, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer this summer and in July his left lower leg had to be amputated. That surgery was followed by rounds of grueling chemotherapy, requiring him to stay in the hospital for days. Levy learned of his plight this summer, when she came across Libman's story in a Jewish mothers Facebook group. "I reached out to the family and said, 'This is who I am and this is what I do and I would like to take care of Josh and the family through this entire process. Instead of writing a check, I'll give myself,'" said Levy, who cares for people in their homes post-surgery.
