Wisconsin Teen Facing Life Threatening Condition Gets Her Personal Prom

An Appleton teenager who's decided to go off her ventilator got her wish Friday night to go to the prom.

Jerika Bolen, 14, looked absolutely beautiful in her mermaid inspired dress.

She posted on facebook that this was the best moment of her life.

The self-proclaimed punk rocker has Spinal Muscular Atrophy and her decision to stop medical care will probably mean she ends up in hospice.

Family and friends and people who heard her story turned out to support her by the hundreds at the dance.

Police provided an escort with some 20 squads for her limo.

After the very public party, Jerika plans to spend the rest of her time with her mother and her dogs.
