On last night’s episode of The Project, host Carrie Bickmore had an extra surprise in store for viewers – and one very special guest.
Following a package on the good news from around the world, the host then gave a shout out to one inspirational audience member who has been battling breast cancer.
“We just want to give a shout out to one of our audience members tonight who is with us, had a huge year, battling breast cancer, almost finished chemo, we know you are here with your boyfriend Jarred, we want to say good luck. Jarred, she seems like an absolutely incredible woman,” Bickmore said.
The crowd erupted with applause, but then her partner Jarred had something he wanted to say.
“Tara is probably the strongest, most toughest person I’ve ever met, she is the best mum, the best partner, she is my best friend, we make the best team and I want to spend the rest of my life with you, Tara. Will you marry me?”
“Oh my god yes,” Tara replied.
“You did well, big fella, because we could see you sweating the whole time,” said guest star Ryan Fitzgerald.
