A Girl and a Dress: Diana’s Cinderella Story

This May marks five years since my daughter Diana began her battle with thyroid cancer. Cancer has brought many tears into the lives of my family, but on a few special occasions, cancer has brought us wonderful smiles, hugs and memories.

Three years ago, Diana and our family were invited to the Riley Cancer Center Prom. Each member of the family has the chance to go to “Promingdales” at Riley Hospital to get dresses, shoes, pants, shirts, ties and all the accessories needed for a fairy tale night. When we got there, I tried to show Diana several different dresses in her size. But Diana had her heart set on one dress: she had fallen in love with a white Cinderella ball gown which was at least three or four sizes too big for her. It was the only dress she wanted. Fortunately, there were fairy godmothers in the form of seamstresses who did alterations on the spot. In less than one hour, Diana had her dress that fit perfectly.

The night of the Prom, Diana was all smiles out on the dance floor, wheelchair and all. She was given so many compliments on her gown. She got pictures taken with the Indianapolis 500 Festival Princesses and had fun in the photo booth with her sister Sarah. Our whole family got to feel the sweet excitement of the “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” theme.

Since then, Diana has worn her dress with pride and honor to many different events. She was wearing the gown at the Miss South Central Indiana pageant, which is a lead-up to the Miss Indiana pageant. Diana was a Princess at that event, all full of smiles, even though she was hurting and tired.

The Riley Prom gown made another big appearance at the Indiana Miss Amazing Pageant, which is a pageant for girls and young ladies with special needs. Diana won the title of Indiana Miss Amazing Pre-Teen 2013.

Last June, Diana served as a Princess for her friend, Courtney Jurick, who was competing in the Miss Indiana pageant. She was able to be on the Miss Indiana Outstanding Teen and the Miss Indiana stage, once again full of smiles and wearing her ball gown.

I have been having the same dilemma, a black tie to go to in 3 weeks and again when I am 8 months.
I'm not sure where would carry the dresses in Seattle, but I was able to find a good selection online...I had the best luck with Ripe and Olian dresses - I bought several of their dresses and they all fit beautifully.

If it is a fancy venue, then it may be appropriate to have a black-tie event, but if it is a casual venue, it is not necessary to wear something so fancy as a ball-gown or a tuxedo.
