alex’s place Patients Experience a Prom to Remember
Decked out in party dresses and tuxedos, nine patients from alex’s place, the pediatric oncology clinic, arrived at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center with fun on their minds on Friday, May 10. They gathered there for a limo ride to the Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale, to experience “A Prom to Remember.”
The event, created four years ago for children battling cancer, is meant to give these young patients an evening when they can celebrate life and put their health problems on hold. The patients from alex’s place, and their guests, were some of the approximately 200 kids who took part from across Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.
Besides the limo ride, each of the kids was outfitted with a tuxedo or a dress and greeted on the red carpet by Miami Dolphins players and local pageant winners.
