‘I Don’t Care if it’s Not Cool’—Grieving Parents Urge Others to Pick Their Kids Up From Prom

It’s that time of year again folks! Grab the hairspray and the rhinestones because prom season has arrived.

But as teens gear up to takeover every moderately “fancy” restaurant in town for the next few Saturday nights, one mom is urging parents to do something that just might save their child’s life this prom season.

It’s been seven years this May since Courtney Allmon lost her daughter, Maddie Finch, in a car crash the morning after her junior prom.

It wasn’t drugs or alcohol that threatened Maddie’s precious life, but lack of sleep.

“She had been awake since like 7 a.m. twenty-four hours earlier so she was on her way home,” Courtney said. “She was very close to home and she fell asleep.”
