Touching Reason These Teens Wore Surgical Masks to Prom

*** begin quote ***

Hill, 18, has been battling testicular cancer since last September. His chemotherapy treatments have weakened his immune system to that of a 2-year-old’s, which means when he’s in large public spaces, wearing a surgical mask is necessary to avoid exposure to germs.

Obviously Jarrell’s prom was one of those circumstances, just as it was the week prior when the two attended Hill’s prom for his high school. This time around, however, the happy couple wouldn’t be the only two donning the masks.

“I was talking to my friend Deanna one day about it during class, saying that he and I wore the masks to his prom and she said, ‘Wow that’s so cool, we should get our whole group to wear them,’” Jarrell recalled.

*** end quote ***

We hear so much about “Mean Girls”, but never when young adults demonstrate “kool”.

Hope the young man win his battle. With friends like this, he’s got his “army”.
