Ann Trachtenberg’s niece contacted the University of Wisconsin Badger Marching Band after she had joked that she wanted to be escorted out of the UW Carbone Cancer Center, the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel reported.
Trachtenberg was filmed walking out of the building, smiling wide in a red Wisconsin T-shirt as a dozen members of the band played “On Wisconsin” to mark the end of her treatment, the report said.
