The annual Riley Cancer Center Prom in May is magical night where cancer takes a back seat to fun.
More than 350 patients and family members gather to dance the night away together and enjoy food, fun and friendship.
Promgoers also receive pampering, hairstyling and makeup at the “Riley Day Spa,” and are able to choose their own complimentary gowns, tuxedos, shoes and accessories at the annual Promingdale’s boutique in April.
Women for Riley, Riley Cancer Center and Riley Children’s Foundation are partners in this special initiative for children.

Hayden Dietz September 21, 2015
When he was just a few months old, Hayden Dietz, of Fort Wayne, was diagnosed at Riley Hospital for Children with a heart condition called mitral valve regurgitation, which was caused by a congenital heart defect. Hayden has had three open-heart surgeries at Riley, all performed by Riley Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgeon Mark Turrentine, M.D. Today, Hayden is doing well and continues follow-up appointments with Riley Pediatric Cardiologist Mark Hoyer, M.D. Hayden’s experiences have inspired his family. His grandmother, Valli Dietz, serves on the Northeast Indiana Riley Leadership Committee. Valli and her husband Dave also made a generous gift in support of Riley cardiology research that was combined with a retirement gift from Dave’s employer, Do it Best Hardware. As Valli explains, “If it wasn’t for Riley, Hayden wouldn’t be here.”×
