St. Jude patients and their siblings enjoyed A Neon Night of Fun during the second annual Spring Fling semi-formal dance on the hospital’s campus.

A portion of the hospital’s cafeteria was transformed into a fluorescent world of bright colors and clothing to celebrate the night, which featured food, friendship, dancing and music. Child Life specialists also joined in the fun.

The Child Life Program hosted the event for patients and siblings ages 10 to 14. Events such as Spring Fling and the annual Teen Formal allow patients and families to experience life’s major events while away from home due to treatment.
