LOVELAND, Colo. – Carla Wilson, a mother of four, found out she had terminal cancer and that she couldn’t be saved by treatment, but she could have a little more time.

According to CBS News, her youngest daughter Robyn came up with an idea to make chemotherapy a little less awful, and maybe more fun.

“I didn’t want to, because I thought it was silly,” said Carla.

The first day started with wearing clown noses to treatment.

“We started making it (chemo) fun,” said Robyn.

The outfits and ideas would change for each session, but Robyn always wanted to keep it fun. She noticed immediately how her mother’s attitude changed just by wearing the costumes.

Robyn and Carla both know that this isn’t a permanent fix, and that the cancer will eventually take Carla’s life. But for now, being happy is a reason to keep doing it.

“I think that is one of the reasons why we keep doing it and why I’m so adamant about it, because I think that I’m going to remember this as something that we enjoyed,” said Robyn.
