Why is it called Anti-PROM? MHHA Anti-PROM is the opposite of a “traditional school prom” because it is specially planned and tailored for the health and physical abilities of our guests who are all Prom Kings and Queens in our book! Our Anti-PROM is uniquely planned which includes no strobe lights and no dancing due to their physical/health limitations, but does include fun deejay music, dinner and sit down casino games in which everyone is included and has lifetime of memory making FUN!
What is a “Hidden Illness”? Like Dysautonomia in which MHHA Founder Mik Aschoff has, a hidden illness is one in which the patient looks “normal” on the outside, but their serious illness and debilitating unpredictable symptoms are hidden to the casual observer. Not all life-changing debilitating illnesses are visible and it is our hope at MHHA to give a voice to those we serve who feel mostly hidden in society, their unseen pain often disregarded and unfortunately sometimes forgotten by their friends due to their frequent hospitalizations and school absences.
Thank You! This event would not be possible without our many generous volunteers and donors who give throughout the year, especially at our annual Boo Bash, which helps make Anti-PROM free to our guests. They have our most heartfelt appreciation!
MHHA is proud partners with Lamb Foundation for Dysautonomia Research and appreciate the dedication of Dr. Numan, Dr. Butler, Rebecca Martinez (Dysautonomia Research Nurse) and the rest of the amazing team at the Dysautonomia Center for Excellence at UT Physicians / Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston, Tx.
