Prayers For Jenna: High School Student Suffering from Cancer Crowned High School Prom Queen

Jenna Bodiford has been battling cancer and wasn’t prepared to have a royal surprise at her prom.

The 14-year-old Barnwell, South Carolina student was diagnosed in September with stage 4 rhabdomyosarcoma which affects her muscles. Jenna has only been able to attend high school intermittently due to the intense treatments -- but the teen just couldn’t miss her high school prom. After her school called the Bodiford family to invite Jenna to the event personally, a group of friends even went to the family's home beforehand to help get her ready for the big night.​

Escorted to the dance by one of her brothers, Jenna was given a tiara and incredible memories that will last forever after being called up and crowned as honorary prom queen -- a surprise she was never expecting.
