Teen takes terminally ill grandmother to high school prom

In the News | May 24, 2017

After learning of his grandmother’s cancer diagnosis, a 17-year-old wanted to give her a night to remember.

Stephen Vigil took his grandmother to Stafford High School’s prom on Saturday — the eve of Julia Jarman’s 92nd birthday.

The Fredericksburg Free-Lance Star reports (http://bit.ly/2rzP7Lg) that Jarman was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer earlier this year and that Vigil invited her to the prom to make the most of their time left together.
