Teen Dies After Prom, But What Friends Do With Her Dress Is Mind-Blowing

After several months in the hospital, Catherine lost her battle with cancer. Wanting to find a way to honor their dear friend, Catherine’s bffs Jillian, Emma, Lauren and Carly came up with the idea that her mom nicknamed “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Prom Dress.” Each friend said they will take turns wearing Catherine’s dress to their formal dances in the years to come.

Said Jennifer to Today: “They’re carrying Catherine’s spirit with them,” she added. “She will forever be a part of their hearts and souls but wearing the dress is an outward physical acknowledgment of that love.”
