The parents of a little girl who was diagnosed with terminal cancer threw her a very special “dream” birthday party this week.

Lila May Schow was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma when she was just two years old.

When she turned five this week, her parents decided to throw her a birthday, prom and wedding party to celebrate the milestones that she would never have.

Speaking to ABC News, Lila’s father Ryan said: “We’re not going to get the prom dance or daddy-daughter dance.”

He added that Lila told him her favorite part of the evening was “when my daddy cried because he was so happy”.

Ryan, who was Lila’s “groom” for the wedding part of the event, and Lila’s mother Heidi decided to make the party Cinderella-themed for the little girl who loves princesses.

According to ABC, the party was entirely crowd funded for the family and had over one hundred people in attendance, including a host of Disney princesses.

On a Facebook page dedicated to Lila and her battle, Heidi described the party as a “beautiful dream”.
