Parents throw fairy tale ball for girl with rare cancer

- Lila May was diagnosed with stage Neuroblastoma when she was just 2 years old. Since then, she has endured countless chemo, radiations and multiple surgeries to remove tumors in her brain and stomach, as well as dozens of other operations.

Her parents, Ryan Schow and Heidi Hall, are unsure how much time she has left and wanted to celebrate their little girl with a big bash on her fifth birthday, which was July 31.

With the help of gracious contributions, her parents, friends and family threw her much more than a birthday party. They had a ball - literally. 

Lila rode up in a horse-drawn carriage dressed like Cinderella, and had guests like Elsa, Belle, Snow White and other Disney princesses attend her party. 

A GiveForward page set up in 2014 for Lila May raised $14,000.
