He decided to take her to the prom to make the most of their time left together, the Free Lance-Star reports.

Jarman, who had never been to a prom before, wore a blue dress to match her grandson’s vest and bow-tie. She also wore a red rose corsage.

The school’s principal gave her a silver crown and a sash that read ‘prom court’ when she walked into the room.

‘We laughed, we talked, we had coffee and we had juice,’ Jarman said of her first prom. ‘It was just wonderful.’

Vigil said: ‘She doesn’t have much time left, so I didn’t even have to think about the decision to take her to prom. I’m so glad we’ll both have these memories.’

The teenager was given special approval to bring his grandmother* to the prom after explaining the situation to his school principal.

Usually students are not allowed to bring partners older than 20.
