For the majority of teenagers going to Prom is not just a rite of passage, it's one of the most important events of their lives. That's no different for teen patients at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Prom night is one of the most important events of a young person's life and St. Jude makes sure it is as special as possible for their patients.

Every year, patients and their siblings ages 15 to 19 are invited to dance the night away at the St. Jude Teen Formal.

Making it even more special is the donations from staff and local businesses. Those donations help provide the kids with limousines, prom pictures, formal wear, and makeovers!

The night is made even more unforgettable and spectacular with a red carpet for photos and showing off their dresses, gowns and tuxes.

I couldn't imagine having to miss my Prom because of being in the hospital with cancer, what St. Jude does for these children is more than worth the cost of becoming a Partner in Hope.
