Life with cancer can be overwhelming for children and their families. The associates at the Hyundai Cancer Institute at CHOC Children’s strive to create fun, unique events and experiences for patients of all ages. 

Teen Prom
Every June a prom is held for many of our teen patients and their dates.  It is a complimentary event complete with photos, a DJ, dress attire and entertainment.  
 
Teen Nights 
Several times each year, current teen patients are invited to a night out of the hospital.  These events bring the teens   together for an evening that allows them to have fun and make new friends who understand what they are going through. 
 
Courageous Kids Celebration 
Once per year, the Cancer Institute teams up with the American Cancer Society to host an event in Orange County for all cancer survivors.  All past and current patients are invited to a day of fun for themselves and their families.  
 
Irvine Lake Fishing Trip 
Each year the Irvine Lake and the Bass Clubs of Orange County team up with CHOC Children’s to host a fishing trip for current patients and their families.  Patients are invited to a day of fun out at Irvine Lake where they go fishing in boats out in the lake and come back to a barbeque, games and much more.
 
Special Entertainment
CHOC patients regularly receive special visits from our local community, including surprises from Disneyland’s world famous characters, athletes from the Angels baseball and Ducks hockey teams, and a variety of celebrities. Child Life will inform families and patients of special visitors and entertainment beforehand.
 
For information on these events or additional events taht go on throughout the year, speak with your child's nurse or case coordinator.
