Student Battling Spine Tumor Asks Carly Rae Jepsen To Prom

A student at Saint Louis University High School in Illinois has been dealt a tough break but he’s gotten up the courage to ask Carly Rae Jepsen to a school dance through a YouTube music video.

Junior Josh Ritter is on the track team. Fourteen months ago, in the middle of his sophomore year, he found out he had a tumor on his spine. Things have changed drastically.

So he decided to direct a video invitation for Carly Rae to the Junior Ring Dance in May. The video features him wheeling around in his wheelchair, lip-syncing to “Call Me Maybe”, which has been an inspiration to Josh during his physical therapy.

Surgery to remove Josh’s tumor has relieved his pain, restored some of his feeling, and allowed him to start walking again. But his fight is not finished. He has a rough road of therapy ahead. His friends and family are trying to help make sure Carly Rae at least sees the video and gives him an answer.
