Despite Serious Illness, Patients At Children's Hospital Hold A Prom

Patient Gabrila Alvarez and Jesus Alvarez arrive for the " Night Under the Stars" prom at the New York-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital on June 6, 2009 in New York City. As prom season kicks off across America, approximately forty teenagers suffering from chronic and life-threatening illnesses, walked the red carpet as part of their own prom night held at the hospital. The event was organized by a group of fifteen patients in an effort to make the hospital a better place. Professional hairstylists, make-up artists, manicurists and a limousine were on hand to give the patients a memorable night.
