St. Joseph’s patients enjoy prom night

Current and former pediatric patients enjoyed a Big Top Circus-themed prom at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Tampa, FL Friday night, 5/1/15, complete with music, dancing, refreshments, and keepsake photos. Before the fifth annual dance began, the girls got their hair and make-up done. "For some seriously ill pediatric patients, this prom may be a once in a lifetime opportunity,” said Christi Schwichtenberg, child life supervisor at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital. “We think it’s a night that every child should have, no matter how sick, so we’re giving them a chance to go to prom now.” (May 1, 2015) [Monica Herndon,]
