A McKinney, Texas, high school student was surprised by fellow students who threw a school dance in her honor. But first a make-up artist and photographers volunteered to shoot Kate Pepper's senior photos.
Pepper was first diagnosed with anaplastic astrocytoma, a form of brain cancer, in 2014 but beat it. It returned last summer. After this photo shoot on Friday, her boyfriend Braylon Shavers invited her to dinner at a restaurant. A mile away, friends, teachers and family were preparing for the big dance surprise.
