She Lost Her Battle To Cancer, What Friends Did With Her Prom Dress Is Mind-Blowing

Like most sixteen-year-old girls, Catherine Malatesta had dreams of attending her prom. But after being diagnosed with stage IV cancer less than a year earlier, those dreams were quickly fading.

Although she had become very weak during her treatments, she was absolutely overjoyed when she was released from the hospital the day before the big dance.

Wearing a midnight blue sparkly gown with her blonde hair styled in a sophisticated braided updo, Catherine attended the glittery event with prom date, Peter Clifford.

But things took a turn for the worse when Catherine was readmitted to the hospital few days after the prom.

After several months in the hospital, Catherine lost her battle with cancer.

Wanting to find a way to honor their dear friend, Catherine’s bffs Jillian, Emma, Lauren and Carly came up with the idea that her mom nicknamed “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Prom Dress.”

Each friend said they will take turns wearing Catherine’s dress to their formal dances in the years to come.

“She will forever be a part of their hearts and souls but wearing the dress is an outward physical acknowledgment of that love.”

May God give her eternal rest and the family the strength to bear the great pain. Our most heartfelt condolences
