So amazing, yet so sad

Just last week we told you about 14-year-old Jerika Bolen who has decided at the end of August to end her life via doctor assisted suicide.

The teen suffers from Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 2 and is in a state of chronic pain. Knowing the disease and her pain is only going to get worse as she gets older, Jerika decided with the support of her mother to end her life next month, but in the meantime she’s going to spend her summer fulfilling lifelong wishes.

One of those wishes was to go to prom, and last weekend that wish was granted.
