Terminally ill father, Jim Roberts, is taken to the dance floor in his wheelchair by his newly wedded daughter. An emotional audience watch on, as the father and daughter perform a dance routine to "their song".

The Alabama-based father and daughter, Jim and Mary, had planned to dance to "their song" ("I Hope You Dance," by Lee Ann Womack) at Mary's wedding ever since she was a child.

In May of 2017 Jim was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an incurable form of brain cancer, and he started hospice care last December.

It wasn't clear if Jim would make the wedding on December 29, but he and his daughter were determined to have their moment together.
