Pediatric patients trade hospital gowns for tuxedos and dancing shoes

"Many of our patients sadly miss milestone moments, like their school prom, because of their treatments,” said Chantelle Bennett, Child Life manager at Florida Hospital for Children. “We’re dedicated to providing wholistic care for our patients, and tonight, that meant providing an experience that helped them forget about their challenges and just have fun.”

While the teens enjoyed the event, parents were invited to watch a movie and received a “parent pass” to briefly join the prom for pictures with their children.
