A mum paid tribute to her daughter after she passed away from cancer by attending her school prom.
Sarah Griffiths’ 14-year-old daughter, Daisy, sadly died from Ewing sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, in May 2017.
According to her mother, attending school prom was one of Daisy’s last wishes.
So when one of her daughter’s school friends invited Griffiths to the prom, she was admittedly “overwhelmed”.
“I asked her how she would feel about me going and she said ‘we wouldn't want to do it without you’,” the 44-year-old said. “It was so special.”
On the evening, Griffiths was introduced as a special guest and given a bunch of flowers.
The last dance she shared with her daughter was at an event her friends organised called the ‘Daisy Dance’.
“She was so poorly and we didn't think she'd make it, but she had a second wind,” she told the BBC. “I asked if she wanted to dance with me and she put her crutches down and wobbled towards me and we danced and talked away to the song Stand By Me.”
Daisy was diagnosed with cancer in July 2015 after suffering from leg spasms and soon underwent chemotherapy and proton beam therapy.
But the family were told that the cancer was incurable in January 2017 and she passed away on May 1, 2017.
“She was an incredible little girl and so beautiful. If anyone would get through it it would be her," her mother said. “She was always smiling through everything.”
In loving memory of Daisy, her mum is raising money for Dreams and Wishes - a charity dedicated to making terminally ill children’s dreams come true.
