A Texas woman was so excited to finish treatment for breast cancer that she broke the 'cancer-free' bell.

Darla Jaye, from The Woodlands, was diagnosed with breast cancer in February and immediately began radiation treatment. 

Monday, July 15, marked her final radiation appointment at Harris Health Systems in Houston, which meant Jaye could finally ring the bell, reported ABC 13.

A hospital worker filmed her joyously ringing the bell, until the clapper breaks off and goes flying through the air.
