Dying Father Treats Daughters to a Special Night They’ll Never Forget


Charlie Kwentus, from Webster Groves, Missouri, doesn’t have a lot of time left, but he’s living each moment to the fullest.

Kwentus, 42, has Oligodendroglioma, a type of brain tumor. Recently, he and his family decided to stop all treatment and enjoy the time he has left, KSDK 5 reported.

Kwentus knew he may not be there to see his daughters, ages 9 and 13, walk down the aisle or even go out on dates and get dressed up for prom. So, with help from a nonprofit called Annie’s Hope, which provides support for children and teens grieving the loss of a family member, he took them on a very special father-daughter date.

I won’t be able to walk them down the aisle,” Kwentus told the outlet, “but I will get this.”
