Five year old Lila May Schow, has suffered with stage four neuroblastoma for three years.


With her body too weak to accept chemotherapy, she no longer receives the treatment and doctors predict she will die before Thanksgiving.



With her fifth birthday being her last, her parents Heidi and Ryan decided to throw her the ultimate party. Using Facebook, they enlisted an army of volunteers, businesses and donations from their hometown of Hood River, Oregon.



The end result was a birthday party, a prom and a wedding all rolled into one as Lila’s parents wanted her to experience all the things she would miss. Nothing was paid for, everything being donated by several hundred very kind people.



A huge fan of Disney, Lila was dressed as a princess…




For the wedding, she was proposed to by her father who then walked her down the aisle, “married her” and had a father daughter dance.



Her father told local news, “We wouldn’t have gotten this far and been able to fight this hard without all the help we’ve been given. We’re so very grateful for that. It’s all about making a little girl smile.”



The little girl's heroic story motivated her entire community to come together over the summer to make her birthday dreams come true. News of the town's generosity and the dream princess-themed bash made headlines around the world, bringing attention to a story that has been going on for three years.

"My heart is shattered into a million pieces," Lila's mom, Heidi Hall, posted on the Facebook page dedicated to her daughter. "There is no pain on earth that is worse than this. The world will never be the same without her beautiful face here with us."

The young girl from Hood River, Oregon, was diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma at the age of 2. When doctors told her mother that Lila's body was too weak to continue treatment in early July, her family and community rallied to bring her as much joy as possible during her remaining months.

After getting the birthday party of a lifetime, spending a week in Hawaii, and being named the princess of her town, Lila had one dream left – to dance on stage with Luke Bryan.



"She's just always loved him, whenever she hears his songs come on, she starts dancing," her mother told PEOPLE earlier this month. "Her favorite song of all time is 'That's My Kind of Night.' If she could to be on stage with him while he sings that song, that would just make her whole entire year."
