In November of 2014, high school senior Hannah Tate was diagnosed with a rare form of kidney cancer and began undergoing chemotherapy to battle it.
After missing most of her final year of classes, activities and just being a carefree teenager, she had simply resigned herself to staying home and missing her prom.
On a whim, she reached out via Instagram to her favorite celebrity hair and clothing stylist, Tokyo Stylez, who has worked with the likes of Rihanna, Naomi Campbell and many more. The trendsetter was so touched by the teen that he jumped into action, showing up hours before her prom at her front door, armed with a custom lace front wig (she had lost all her hair to chemo), makeup and a beautiful gown.
Tokyo sent her off to her prom in style, giving this young girl a much needed dose of hope, happiness and release from what is a physically and mentally debilitating disease.
Compassion can go such a long way; a few hours out of your day can mean the WORLD to someone else.
