The prom with a difference - and the inspiring teenager behind it
I’ve always dreamed of having a prom. You get to dress up and feel special. For Lewis to give me that chance - it really was a dream come true
– Izzy went to a prom which Lewis had organised
The school prom has become a rite of passage for teenagers, but every year there are hundreds of children around the country who can't attend theirs because of serious illness. Sixteen-year-old Lewis Hine is on a mission to change that.
He's spent much of his childhood in hospital after being diagnosed with a brain tumour as a toddler - a battle that inspired him to help other sick children who miss out on school to find friends, and even throw them their very own prom.
He joins us today alongside mum Emma and his new friend Izzy, who attended the prom after feeling isolated as she battled a brain tumour.
