Cancer Patient Crowned Prom Queen

Posted: Updated:

A fifteen year old cancer patient gets a surprise she will never forget.

"She had no idea. We kept a surprise for her," event organizer, Payton Campbell.

Two years ago Kennedy Brown was diagnosed with brain cancer.

It's now gotten so bad that she is in hospice care, and is unable to attend school.

Brown was recently granted a special trip back to Carnegie Vanguard High School in Houston, Texas, where her six closest friends had a surprise waiting for her.

The group threw a surprise prom for Brown where they all dressed up in gowns and line danced before crowing her prom queen.

Another friend, Betsy Goodfriend, says "It was nice to see her smile after all she had been through."

Brown, a big Houston Rockets fan, also got a surprise visit from Clutch, the team's mascot.

"She just lit up. It meant the world her," says Brown's friend, Julia Dietrich.
