Fred Scarf, CNN Hero, Plans Proms For Seriously Ill Teens

Posted: Updated:

After cancer claimed his best friend before she could attend their high school prom, Fred Scarf decided to dedicate himself to making a difference for other critically ill teens. He founded the No Worries Now Foundation, an organization that uses donations to plan free proms for teens facing life-threatening diseases.

Scarf's nonprofit allows donors to contribute small, specific amounts, to fund a corsage, dinner or makeup for an individual teen.

CNN honored Scarf as a CNN Hero.
