BOISE, ID — A Boise girl got a huge surprise that was captured on camera, and has gone viral.

According to KIVI, Khloe lost her dad, a marine veteran, nine years ago to suicide after a battle with PTSD.

Her mom says she’s been bullied at school for not having a dad, but when the time came for the father-daughter dance, she didn’t have to go alone. A family friend, Steve Exceen, wanted to make the dance extra special, so he dressed up with his own daughter, asking Khloe to go to the dance with them.

The sweet moment, caught on camera, has since gone viral.

Khloe’s mom says they had a blast and it will now be a tradition for the three to go together.
