BECAUSE OF YOU... Dreams can come true For some medically fragile patients at Kapi‘olani Medical Center for Women & Children, the dream of attending their school’s prom is not possible. Staff and volunteers came together with generous vendors and companies from the community to create a full-scale version of prom in the hospital, complete with deejay, picture taking, formal wear and more. Friends and family joined patients in a safe setting for a fun and unforgettable experience.
