Prom held for children at Lucille Packard Hospital

PALO ALTO, Calif.

"You really miss out when you're in hospital school, so it's really nice to be able to get together with everybody," said Jose Iniguez, who is 16 years old.

"I get to see all of my friends here and I get to do my first ever prom," said Luke O'Moore, who is 8 years old.

Any kids who attended the hospital school in the past year were invited. The hospital says the goal is to help give patients as close to a normal a life as possible.
