Terminally ill girl won’t make it to her own high school dance, so brother asks her to his

As any kid will tell you, going to your first formal dance at school is a pretty big deal. It’s a formal event with your classmates and friends which pretty much represents the highlight of your social life up until then.
Well, for AJ Spader, the fifteen-year-old boy in the video below and his sister Rebekah, their first school dance was more than an opportunity to have some fun and hang out with friends. You see, the girl suffers from a rare disease called myelodysplastic syndrome, a condition which stops the production of blood cells in the bone marrow.
The condition is so severe in her case that she and her family were forced to come to terms with the fact that Rebekah is most likely to never see a full life and experience all the wonderful things most of us get to experience.
That includes going to high school dances. So her brother decided to help Rebekah make the most out of the time she’s got and experience as many things as possible. He invited her to go with him at his first high school dance in a way that she will never forget.
Make sure to grab a box of tissues, because this one is a tear-jerker!
