“My client who was just diagnosed with breast cancer began to cry when I handed them to her and told her I couldn’t wait for her to get to our appointment together so I could give them to her. She kept insisting that I give them to someone who needed them more than she did, and I told her she did need them. She thanked me and said that no one has ever given her flowers. I LOVE What Cheer Flowers!!!!”

“The lady’s face just lit up. It was as if a beacon of light was coming from the top of Federal Hill through the city.
