A heartwarming and heartbreaking story all at the same time.
Rebekah, a 10-year-old from South Dakota, was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare form of cancer, at the age of six. According to Mayo Clinic, myelodysplastic syndrome affects less than 200,000 people a year and doesn't allow bone marrow to generate healthy blood cells.
Unfortunately, after many years of treatment nothing was successful enough to make Rebekah cancer-free. Knowing his sister's limited time, AJ, Rebekah's 15-year-old brother, didn't want her to miss out on one of life's milestones--her first high school dance. So, AJ decided to invite her to his. "I want to spend as much time with her as possible, while she's still doing good," AJ told ABC News.
Rebekah got the full dance experience including a pre-dance photo op, a dinner, and even a dazzling tiara (which she rocked, by the way!). AJ didn't even think about bringing anyone else to the dance. "Rebekah kind of trumped them all," he said.
