This Marine Surprising His Mom During Chemotherapy Will Make You Cry

Posted: Updated:

After being diagnosed with breast cancer in March, Mary Glasure desperately wanted to see her son in person.

For the past two years her son Cpl. Corey Hoffmaster was serving at the Marine Corps Air Station Yuma in Arizona.

"I needed him home because he's my strength. Being in the Marines, he's the matter-of-fact, you've-got-to-do-this type," Glasure told about her son.

Much to her surprise, Hoffmaster not only got a 10-day leave to visit her, he also coordinated an elaborate surprise during her first chemotherapy treatment on March 16.

Dressed as a doctor, complete with a surgical mask, Hoffmaster harshly commented "I have a lunch appointment I need to get to so let's hurry up," upon entering the room.

Taken aback, Glasure simply stares back at the doctor saying "OK" before bursting into a fit of giggles. That's when Hoffmaster pulls off the mask giving his mother the surprise of a lifetime.

Watch the video above for the whole emotional reveal.
