A Prom in the Hopsital


CBS
Monday, May 26, 2008
Jeffrey Kahn, the founder of Smiles knows what it is like to be a parent to a very ill child.
In 1988 when his child was stricken with leukemia the founded Smiles to bring sunshine and cheer to those children in hospitals for long term illnesses.
Kahn's organization organized a wonderful prom, complete with feather boas, tiaras, and prom outfits for girls and small tuxes for boys! :):)
Kahn's organization believes that feeling better helps people to recover from life threatening illnesses. Some parents attend the dance.
Smiles also organizes ice cream weeks in the hospital.
Tell us what you think fo the work that they do and do you agree that feeling better at such events helps patients to recover faster? Pleas leave your comments. Thanks!

That's great.  Being mentally positive and remembering what makes life worthwhile is essential for getting better and I know that this has to help.
