This is 17-year-old MeKayla Gist and she was diagnosed with a rare type of bone cancer about two years ago, and she lost one of her legs.

The cancer came back in February and she had to have another surgery on her hip. She missed a lot of school as a result and some how she is still in the top ten in her class!

When her friends found out that she would be in the hospital and she was going to miss her prom, which took place this past weekend.

So, they did what amazing friends do, the brought the prom to her hospital room. Dozens of students showed at the hospital.
