SC teen with Cerebral Palsy asks dad to prom

Mar 19, 2017 Matt Clarke

A South Carolina teen with cerebral palsy came up with a touching way to ask her dad to the prom.

Michelle Worden, 17, of Walterboro has the condition, which has led to her being in a wheelchair. It also makes it very difficult to speak.

However, she didn’t let that be an obstacle to what she wanted: a date for prom. Her dad Joseph is a big fisherman, so she wrote a note on his tackle box asking “will you ‘tackle’ prom with me?’ It also had a little heart on it.

He, of course, said yes.
