Now let's hope this video get's to Taylor Swift! A High School Senior with a Rare Disease has asked her to the Prom.
Devon has an extremely rare disease called Oto-Palatal-Digital Syndrome, or OPD. He's had over two-dozen surgeries since he was born. The syndrome also makes Devon look a little different.
He told Denver's KUSA-TV, quote, "People stare at me because of the way I look. They laugh at me and talk behind my back. And sometimes I can hear them. You want to say something, but you can't. And it hurts." Devon says he's too shy to ask anyone in school to the prom . . . so he decided to shoot for the moon and see if Taylor would go.
