DENVER (CBS4) – Children’s Hospital Colorado put on a prom for teenage patients who might not otherwise get to experience the rite of passage.
“We get to do this together and our mom gets to be here,” said Maya Abrahamsson.
“She doesn’t get out a lot. She doesn’t have the energy to do a lot of things so she’s been really looking forward to this,” said Sheila Abrahamsson, Maya’s mother.
While the guests are all fighting a serious medical condition, they were able to forget about the doctors and appointments for a few hours.
