Hospital Staff Bring Prom To Ill Teen

Indianapolis, IN (AHN) - An Indianapolis hospital threw a makeshift prom for a teen patient whose illness prevented her from attending her school's dance.

Hospital staff and Community Health Network Foundation members transformed Community Hospital North's atrium into a restaurant Saturday night for a pre-prom dinner for high school senior Leah Westrick, the Indianapolis Star reported.

On one hand, I think this is really cool.

On the other hand, it seems like a lot of effort, cost and drama for something that's not that important.

Prom? Mehhhh... My high school proms - 30 years ago - were boring. My wife didn't go to hers. Both our sons went once, but found them to be insipid and overly-hyped. Our soon-to-graduate daughter hasn't gone to either of her proms. She'd MUCH rather just go hang out at a cool, quirky restaurant with her friends.

On the other hand, if this was something like a family member's wedding - that they changed venues for, because of a serious illness - then you'd have something newsworthy.
