GRIMES — Friends of an Iowa girl battling a rare illness re-created prom so she could share in the experience.
Dozens of Grimes residents came together to stage a prom for Danna Rains, who had missed her dance.
Friends and strangers came together to make prom happen for Rains on Saturday. A dress and limousine were donated.
Rains has a rare disease that depletes her energy and makes it hard for her to do the things a normal teen does.
Rains' mother, Carla Britton, said prom was something her daughter wanted to do. — AP
