High School Student Treats Sick Mom To A Day To Remember

When Kerry Huffaker was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer, her son Dylan was devastated that his mother might miss out on attending his wedding day in years to come. So, to create a special day that the two of them could share, Dylan decided to invite his Mom as his date to his prom at Canyon Ridge High School.

Dylan even surprised Kerry with his invitation, showing up to her radiation treatment with a box of donuts, iced with the message “Will you go to prom with me?” At first, Kerry was reluctant to accept, thinking her son would be embarrassed to seen with his Mom at prom, but Dylan was adamant. “I try not to focus too much on the future. I try to live today as best as I can, but (thought) ‘who’s going to dance with my son when the Mom is supposed to dance with the groom at his wedding day?” said Kerry.

Happily, Dylan arranged for a special dance for him and Kerry to share, so they will both have the memory of that moment, no matter what the future brings “The DJ cleared the dance floor and let us dance the first half, just me and my Mom,” Dylan said. “I put her through 17 years of hard times, so it’s worth taking her to prom. I love that my Mom is as caring as she is. No matter what you’re going through, she’s willing to help- no matter what hard times she’s facing.”

Watch the moment Kerry received Dylan’s heart-warming invitation!
