PHS Patients go to Prom

Thomas Does a Grand March

On April 28th, PHS patient Thomas’s high school celebrated their prom – and he was at the grand march with the rest of the students in his class. His date Brianna, who is a classmate at the high school, came over to Thomas’s house on Saturday for some photos after she got a few lessons in wheelchair steering to ensure a smooth stroll down the grand march aisle.

That evening, they were off to the high school gym for the march where the crowd went wild as they made their grand entrance. “ I’ve never seen his eyes shine as bright as they were that evening when he was going down the aisle,” mom Andrea said. Thomas hung out with classmates throughout the rest of the march and took pictures afterwards – it was a great evening and we were so happy to hear all about it!

Sebastian asks Sophia to Prom

PHS patients Sophia and Sebastian had a blast at prom together in New York Mills on April 26. The two have been friends since they met eight years ago. Sebastian, who is a sixth grader in the Staples-Motley school district, invited Sophia to prom by holding up a sign that said, ‘Sophie, will you be my prom date?’ and sending the photo to her.

The morning of the dance, a photographer came over to get these great photos of the two of them (and Sebastian’s dog, Daisy Mae, before a bus took them to the venue. There, a formal lunch was served and middle school, high school, and adult attendees enjoyed themselves for the afternoon. We loved hearing about their big day together.

What has your family been up to lately? We love to hear about our patients and families out and about in their communities!
