Our mission is to provide the ultimate prom experience for teens who have been affected by cancer.
Prom night is typically a highlight for most teenagers, unfortunately many kids battling cancer do not get to have that experience because of their illness. Our goal is not only to provide them something incredible to look forward to, but also to give them an experience that will give them lasting memories. "A Prom To Remember" is an event that helps provide hope, strength and inspiration.
The kids are treated like movie stars as they arrive in limousines, walk the red carpet, and dance the night away. And with the help of sponsors and donations, we provide everything necessary to help make this prom unlike any other. Everything from tuxedoes for the boys, dresses and salon services for the girls, limousine transportation, prom photos, food, entertainment and much more are all provided for these courageous teens.
We are grateful for the support of our surrounding communities and hope to provide this opportunity for kids all across the country.

According to the National Cancer Institute, cancer strikes an estimated 1 in 325 U.S. youngsters before age 20. This translates to millions of affected teens around the country.
The good news is the teen cancer survival rate is now approximately 85 percent, according to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The survival rate has increased significantly from 30 years ago, when it was only about 60 percent.

Just as many great things in the world get started, all is took was an idea. Realizing that many teens suffering from life-threatening illnesses miss out on many of their high school memories, Founder Brandon Opre had the idea that he wanted to create a special memory for these kids in the Fort Lauderdale area where he lived. High School Prom is one of the big events of a teenager's life, and after bouncing the Prom idea off of several good friends in the community, Brandon's idea gained momentum and quickly became a reality. Before long, hundreds of community supporters rallied and helped assemble not only a Prom - but the ultimate prom for kids with cancer in South Florida.
The group is spreading its mission to other areas of the country, with Cleveland creating their first Prom in 2010. Others are launching this year. Sound like something that you would want to be a part of? Tell us more...
