Wisconsin Teen Suffering Genetic Disease Parties at Prom Thrown in Her Honor Before Her Medically Assisted Suicide

July 25, 2016

(New York Daily News) – A Wisconsin teenager was the belle of the ball at a prom held to celebrate her life. Dressed in a turquoise mermaid gown, her usually purple hair dyed a similar shade, Jerika Bolen rolled up to her very own prom in a stretch limo escorted by a slew of local first responders — and things only got more fun from there. The Appleton Community came together to hold the dance Friday for their 14-year-old pal who, having made the decision to end her own life, will never be able to dance at her own.
