Amber told Lancaster Online that she never thought she'd make it to May. She also said she might not have the stamina to dance the night away on Saturday, but she's really looking forward to the food.

"I didn't think I'd be here for the prom," Amber said. "We didn't think I'd make it to May. That sounds morbid, but..."

"I'm excited," she said. "I'm sure my friends will be glad to see me, but I'm going for Quinn, not for anybody else. It's me and Quinn's night. My other friends have their own dates."

Amber and her family are now just trying to make the best of the time she still has. She recently bought a PT Cruiser that she named Toby and plans to have as much fun as possible for as long as she can.

"There's no point in trying to beat it if you're just going to be mad about it all the time, because you're just making yourself miserable," Amber says. "You're staying alive to be miserable. That's stupid."
