Detroit Red Wings forward Riley Sheahan gave one cancer patient a surprise of a lifetime over the weekend.

22-year-old Morgan Behen is battling an inoperable brain tumor. She was invited to attend a special prom in Detroit on Saturday, organized by Wish Upon a Teen. 

The non-profit group helps boys and girls battling life-threatening conditions.

Behen wrote a letter, inviting Sheahan to be her date at the dance.

He said yes, but didn't tell her until he showed up to the event.
