Kilgore, Tx (KETK) — To high school students, prom can be a magical experience.
But, for one Kilgore student, that magical moment was almost stolen from her, when she was diagnosed with cancer. Luckily, Lynzee Ford's mom had a plan to sweep the teen off her feet. Last weekend, Lynzee's mom planned her very own prom for her at the hospital.
Lynzee says the hardest part about being at the hospital is being so far from her friends-- well they surprised her at the prom.
Her prom was complete with a DJ, a dance with her dad and even a celebrity date, Houston rapper, Propane. Lynzee says it was a night of a lifetime.
"I wasn't expecting it at all.I 'll never forget that..having your own prom is way better than just having a prom."
Lynzee is preparing for a bone marrow transplant. If all goes well, she should be back to school in the fall.
