The link leads to pictures of a heartwarming gesture from a friend who planned a prom in a Tennessee hospital’s ICU for Katelyn Norman. She suffers from osteosarcoma, an aggressive bone cancer and she made a bucket list that included a prom.

The photos have been posted under the title, ‘Katelyn's Hospital Prom’ with the following description:

Katelyn couldn't make it to the personal prom set up for her later that night due to medical complications, so the prom was brought to her as a surprise in a converted room next to hers in the ICU. All photos courtesy Michael Dayah.”

The pictures have gone viral and the prom has also been covered by a number of prominent news channels. Have a look at some of the special moments from the event:
