St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital CAR-NIVAL Prom
April La Cava along with her miniature therapy horses from Hold Our Horses, attended St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital Special CAR-NIVAL Prom. The hospital hosted the carnival-themed event for its teenage patients who were unable to attend their own dance and younger patients who due to chronic or life-threatening conditions, may never get the opportunity. Pediatric patients and their families stepped right up and had a ball during the drive-thru prom. The Child Life team at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital, with support from the St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital Foundation, organizes special events like prom in an effort to provide patients with experiences that they might not otherwise have due to treatment and hospitalization.
