With just months left to live, Kerry Huffaker got to experience one of the most magical nights of her life, thanks to her son.
There was no one else Dylan Huffaker would rather take to prom than his beloved mother, who had been diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer in February.
A few weeks leading up to Canyon Ridge High School’s big night, the 17-year-old surprised his mom during her radiation at Mountain States Tumor Institute in Twin Lakes, Idaho, with chocolate doughnuts.
But these weren’t just any old doughnuts — they had the words “Will you go to prom with me?” written in frosting, which his mom didn’t see at first. She just thought he brought them because it’s the only food that hasn’t made her nauseated during treatment.
“When I realized what he was doing, I said, ‘Are you sure you want to go with your bald old mom?'” Kerry Huffaker, 59, told TODAY. “He responded by telling me I’m going to be the most beautiful one in the room.”
With the help of Melissa Rowe, a social worker at the tumor institute, the community came together to help make the night as memorable as possible.
Rowe contacted Gregg Middlekauff, who owns a local car dealership. Not only did he donate an SUV for the night, but he also paid for her dress and their dinner.
