(NEWSER) – A community's outpouring of love and support gave a 5-year-old girl with terminal cancer a birthday/prom/wedding fitting of a princess and brought her father to tears last week in Hood River, Oregon. 

ABC News reports Lila May Schow was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare form of childhood cancer, three years ago. In that time, Lila visited hospitals around the country for nine surgeries and multiple rounds of chemotherapy. When doctors informed Lila's family they were out of treatment options, relatives decided to throw her a party that would help her fit in as much life as possible in the months her doctors say she likely has left, according to KATU.
