Staten Island cancer survivor surprises girlfriend with proposal in Best Buy
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. (PIX11) – In Staten Island, one man combined his love for his girlfriend – and television – and created a moment that will last forever.
The heartwarming proposal went down inside a Best Buy in New Springville.
Frank Chiaramonte told his girlfriend Alyssa Simeone that they were going shopping for a new TV.
So while deciding between models, her friends and family gathered around all the monitors, which started showing pictures of the couple.
She said yes.
Frank had been diagnosed with cancer six months into their relationship and two years later, they’re both stronger than ever.
Frank is an Advocacy Advocate for the Staten Island chapter of the American Cancer Society and an employee of the New York City Housing Authority. Frank says Alyssa always volunteers with him at events.
