Girl Battling Tumor Wasn’t Expecting This From Her Classmates.

Proms are a big deal, especially when your high school has them, of course. And some prom stories are just as big a deal.

In Houston, 15-year-old freshman Kennedy Brown quit going to her high school, Carnegie Vanguard. She wasn’t that teenager who had just had enough of school and wanted out. No. Kennedy had been battling an inoperable tumor in her brain for the past two years, and now, it was time to stop schooling and enjoy whatever time she had left on this earth.

The school’s prom was coming up, but her classmates wanted to give Kennedy all they could within the next few days, so brainstorming and planning started. Students even came to school on a Saturday and worked with the faculty to give Kennedy the best possible day of her life. And they reached out to other organizations to help.

So the following Monday, Kennedy was invited back to her school. Her favorite team, the Houston Rockets, sent its mascot, Clutch, to give Kennedy a t-shirt and gifts from the team’s star player at the time, Dwight Howard.

The special day was held in the school amphitheater, and nearly 600 students attended it. Kennedy’s friends then escorted her to the Fine Arts building, where she was serenaded and asked to the prom. She was then crowned the prom queen, and there was dancing.

It was an amazing memory created for her by so many of her friends and classmates. And it showed how much they truly cared for her.
