A mother battling cancer was recently able to share a once in a lifetime experience with her son three days before she died, a slow dance at his wedding.

A YouTube video posted September 6, 2014, shows Mary Ann Manning and her son Ryan Manning dancing at his wedding three days before she died.

Mary Ann Manning and her son Ryan can be seen dancing to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Israel “Iz”  Kamakawiwo’ole at his wedding in a YouTube video published by her daughter.

The video had been seen by nearly 300,000 people by Sunday.

"She held on with all her might to give her son this last gift," Manning’s daughter Kristie Manning stated in the video post. 

Mary Manning was battling breast cancer and began using a wheelchair several months before Ryan’s wedding.

Although she appeared to require assistance getting around, the video shows her standing, smiling, and hugging and kissing her son throughout the 2-minute song.
