Several sponsors are helping dreams of going to the prom come true for cancer patients at Children's Hospital of Orange County.

About 30 patients in the oncology unit were fitted for prom dresses Saturday. The patients each got to pick out a designer prom dress, an accessory and make-up free of charge, all thanks to the sponsors.

"This is really exciting, and to be able to have a free dress provided by a premium dress company, that's awesome," said Samantha Bower. "It's a really nice experience for my first time."

The prom will be held June 29.
