Kerry Huffaker of Twin Falls, Idaho, was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer with a 1-2 year prognosis. So, her son Dylan brought her as his date to the Canyon Ridge High School prom.


“That was the most beautiful I think I’ve ever seen her,” Dylan told ABC News. “I thought about it and I can look back after years and years and remember who I went to prom with. I’ll know it was someone I loved who meant something to me.”

Weeks before the prom, Dylan showed up to where his mom Kerry was receiving radiation treatment with a box of donuts. Written in icing was a message that read: “Will you go to prom with me?”
