The mother-son dance at a wedding is always heartwarming, but for Amy Winn, the moment was especially emotional.

As seen in a powerful video shared by her family, Amy Winn — who has Multiple Sclerosis and is confined to a wheelchair — was able to dance with her son Stephen on his wedding day.

Surrounded by friends and family, Stephen picked his mom up out of her wheelchair and they held each other for a few precious moments.

Amy was diagnosed with MS almost two decades ago at 31 years old. She isn’t able to drive, cook or perform numerous other daily functions, according to a YouCaring page that is accepting donations for her to pursue stem cell therapy treatment in L.A. next month.

Amy’s family, including Stephen, his new wife Cassie, her other son Garrett, daughter Gracie, and her sister and brother-in-law Jennifer and Boyd, will be there to support her every step of the way, according to the fundraising page.

“Please keep our family in your prayers! We are full of excitement, anticipation and high expectation to see the Lord move miraculously!” the family said in a statement.
