Dying 5-year-old gets birthday ball fit for a princess

lila_may_dancing_giveforward_660An Oregon girl celebrated her fifth birthday with a princess ball— possibly the last she’ll celebrate in her short life.

Lila May Schow was diagnosed with neuroblastoma three years ago. She’s now battling stage 4 cancer that has returned to her bone marrow.

On her birthday, July 31, her mother, father, stepfather, and hundreds of supporters gathered to throw her a party that was part birthday, part prom, part Cinderella ball, and part wedding day, KOIN 6 News reported. The day was “everything she won’t get,” her mother, Heidi Hall, told the news channel.

“I don’t even know a lot of these people…It’s just the most beautiful thing I think I’ve ever seen,” Hall said.

Much of the event was donated by community members, including Lila May’s custom-made Cinderella dress. She walked a red carpet into her “castle,” followed by Disney princesses.
