Local boy, police accompany teen with cerebral palsy to formal

- A local boy who asked a girl with cerebral palsy to her Sweetheart Formal leading to her now viral reaction finally made their way to formal together this weekend.

16-year-old Bryce asked Madison to accompany him to the formal earlier this month, nearly bringing Madison and her family to tears.          

It's likely every mom's dream for their daughter, but Samantha Kelly thought it would never happen her little girl 15-year-old Madison because she has Cerebral Palsy.

"I wanted to cry," said Madison’s mother said after Bryce asked her daughter to the dance.

Dyneshia Bellamy is Madison's nurse.  She came up with the idea for her 16-year-old son Bryce to ask Madison to the sweetheart ball for people with disabilities.  Bryce agreed and went all out with a sign and flowers asking Madison to the dance.
