The bridegroom, Anthony ‘Scooter’ Hightower, is a good-hearted man, and Terri is his breathtakingly beautiful mother.
Also, you’ll feel warm and fuzzy inside because of the tender moments they shared on the dance floor at his wedding.
Lou Gehrig’s disease, also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the
brain and spinal cord. Patients with ALS may lose their ability to eat, speak, move, and even breathe on their own.
In the video Terri’s family published after her passing, Anthony ‘Scooter’ Hightower pays his mother the most heartfelt ode possible. He does it in the most compassionate way he can.
As a custom to honor his mother, the groom frequently incorporates a mother-son dance into the wedding reception.
With the help of his father, Scooter is able to remove his elderly mother from the wheelchair and cradles
her in his arms after bringing her to the center of the dance floor on his wheeled skateboard.
Scooter glides softly to the music while embracing his mother tightly and crying on her shoulder.
She successfully raised a decent guy till she passed away at the age of 59 ten days after the wedding.
