Children and teens battling illnesses got a welcomed distraction Saturday.

Patients at the Children's Hospital at Montefiore donned night gowns and tuxes for the hospital's ninth annual prom night.

The theme for this year was "90's Prom." The room was filled with bright colors, graffiti and plenty of music.

Current patients and past patients undergoing treatments for cancer or other terminal illnesses were all invited.

Those kids and teens say it is a nice night to have fun and distract themselves from their days in treatment.
