Bride Gives Up Father-Daughter Dance to Bridesmaid and Dad with Cancer

A Massachusetts bride didn’t actually take part in her father-daughter dance at her reception, because she gave up the special moment for a heartbreaking reason. 

Michaela Cook-Yotts’ bridesmaid, Jessica Otto, may never be able to have a father-daughter dance of her own because her dad has cancer. 

Michaela invited Jessica, Jessica’s sister Megan, and their dad to take the floor for an unforgettable dance to a stripped-down version of “Every Breath You Take.”

Jessica has supported her dad since he was first diagnosed with cancer in 2001. The father-daughter duo has participated in a bike ride three times to raise money for the cancer institute where he got treatment for lymphoma and a brain tumor. 

This year, Jessica will ride alone as his health declines.Jessica said, “My dad is my best friend, my riding buddy and my hero.”
