Lori Hartwell of the Renal Support Network continues her close relationship with Jack Black and the Renal Teen Prom one more time. Jack Black thrilled all in attendance with his outlandish antics dressed this time as a king. Most notably, Jack Black is reported to have skipped the Golden Globe awards ceremony to attend this charity event.
"It's a prom for kids that have kidney disease, that have had a transplant and didn't get to have a prom of their own, cause they were having medical problems," Black said. "And it's a great night where kids get to meet other kids that have had the same situation, make friends and share their stories... and have a really good time. Lot of good times... dancin'... singin'... partyin'... you know prom."
Lori Hartwell continues to promote optimal renal care and goes beyond to give back to the children deprived of many basic social outlets due to their disease. For more information on the Renal Support Network teen prom is available on the RSN website. (here)
