This mother and son dance almost didn't happen.

There was only one thing Mary Ann Manning wanted to do before she died. And that was to dance with her son Ryan at his wedding.

Last week the 61-year-old breast cancer sufferer achieved that dream when she stood up from her wheelchair and swayed with her son to the tune of ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’.

Seventy two hours later, Mary Ann passed away.

A video of the beautiful moment shared between Mary Ann and Ryan is now going viral.

Mary Ann’s daughter Karie told a US news channel:

“It was incredibly emotional, especially to see her pop out of the wheelchair.

“For the days leading up to it, we were helping her do everything — even walk.”

Our hearts are with their family.
