Spring Prom is a rite of passage for teens all over the world and our patients at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta were treated to the night of their lives in our Child Life Zone!
The theme was Finding Neverland and as usual, every nook and cranny of our Zone was covered in some kind of beautiful decoration – we had a London scene, a pirate ship, the dance floor was a fairy forest, a mermaid lagoon and so much more! One teen patient said ‘I didn’t recognize The Zone – it was so beautiful – just like a miracle!’
One patient walked in to prom for the very first time on her new prosthetic legs – she was so proud! She was even more excited when she met other kids who also had prosthetic limbs and she may even join them at camp this summer!
Our prom is made possible by so many wonderful volunteers that donate their time, their services and their expertise! Carrey and Cindy are our two ‘prom queens’ that spend many hours and days planning and decorating. We spend 1 full day transforming The Zone before we welcome in the kids. Everything about the evening is perfect and most kids leave with new friends and lots of new contacts in their phones! They all want to know if they can come back next year! We can’t wait!
